The Poway Rodeo is comprised of a family of people, volunteers, who are committed to the well-being and betterment of their community and the continuation of this hometown rodeo. It would not be the well-run success that it is today without the vision, dedication and hard work of its loyal volunteers. Their work on various committees is the heart and soul of the Poway Rodeo. The volunteers make up the foundation by which 45 years of success has been built. They dedicate their time, efforts and resources to planning and conducting a premier Rodeo each September and the annual events that are held in support of the main event. Contributing countless hours each year, the volunteers are the driving force that supports the Poway Rodeo and allows us to donate to various charities as well.
What began as a small group of people with a dream has developed into an event supported by the efforts of many volunteers. What may be surprising to many is the diversity of volunteers that dedicate their time to this organization - people both from Poway as well as other parts of the county, people who run multimillion dollar companies, people who are full-time students working on their education, people who are volunteering for the first time, people that have been volunteering for decades. There are no boundaries for these dedicated volunteers.
The efforts of the volunteers are most apparent during the "Show" when they are directing traffic, assisting vendors, providing hospitality, greeting guests, coordinating events and more. But in a year's time, each volunteer donates countless hours of service to make the Poway Rodeo a success. This includes year-round efforts such as raising sponsorship money, planning and organizing events, setting up facilities and much more.
The Poway Rodeo needs your time and talent to make it a success. We hope you can volunteer and help make this important event happen in Poway!
