Kingman Rodeo History
Articles of rodeos around Kingman go back as early as the 1880’s, especially taking place at surrounding ranches during round-ups. But Kingman hosted its first organized Labor Day rodeo in 1919. The second annual rodeo in 1920 had purses totaling nearly $4,000 (nearly $50,000 in 2015 dollars). In the 1930’s to early 1950’s it was “Dig-‘n-Dogie Days Rodeo, a celebration of ranching and mining skills, as was famously described in “A Guide Book to Highway 66”. That festival eventually phased out as more area mines closed.
