Grand Isle Ladies Rodeo
The 12th Annual Grand Isle Ladies Rodeo will take place during Columbus Day Weekend October 5 – 6, 2018
Tickets pay be purchased from Bridge Side Marina or at the Grand Isle Visitor Center.
The entry fee of $20.00 includes a rodeo hat and/or visor, rodeo ticket, entry for door prizes, reception, dinner and dance on Saturday night. Tickets are available at Bridgeside Marina and at the Tourist Center, located at the Grand Isle Port Commission office next to the Butterfly Dome. Fish weigh in will be held both Friday and Saturday nights.
Last year’s event produced winning fish, very happy anglers, and a $ 6,000 donation to the American Cancer Society’s Patrick Taylor Hope Lodge in New Orleans, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC, Thibodeaux Regional Cancer Center, and the “Wig Room” at the Lady of the Sea General Hospital located in Galliano. The rodeo’s goal to raise awareness and support for breast cancer was achieved.
This year’s rodeo will again support the Wig Room at the Lady of the Sea Hospital, The Hope Lodge in New Orleans, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center at TGMC in Houma and Thibodaux Regional Cancer Center. Our goal is to promote Breast Cancer Awareness and Prevention with another donation.
The Grand Isle Ladies Fishing Rodeo Committee is encouraging team fishing, so get a group of friends together to “fish the ditches” or charter a boat to fish. Design a team shirt or decorate the official rodeo hat and win the special “Fishing Fashion Award” as a team. To be eligible for the award register your team name and members at the Rodeo ticket booth during the rodeo or at the Tourist Center prior to the rodeo. Winners must be present and wearing the team costume, shirt or decorated rodeo cap Saturday night.
Good fishing, good friends, good fun!
