All applications for a non-profit booth must be informational only......nothing can be sold !

As a reminder you must bring a "pigtail" electrical  attachment to be able to get electricity (see photos below) in your booth. Also, as it is dusty some vendors bring a "garden sprayer" (photo attached)  filled with water to "wet down" the area in front of their booth, it helps immensely. (see photos below)  Finally, You are required to light up your vendor spot. The two big performances are at night and you want to be seen!

NEW RULE: We no longer allow you to use canopy (tent) stakes to secure your must use sandbags or another anchoring device. Unfortunately, some people were leaving some stakes and they are a danger to the horses that use that arena the rest of the year.

When it comes to the Poway Rodeo, there is one individual who stands out from the crowd.  That person is Dennis Childers. His responsibilities are not for the timid.  He is responsible for everything the public sees when they enter the Poway Rodeo.  From coordinating the bleacher setup, the tent for the dance, electrical generators, heavy machinery, lighting, the announcers booth, livestock loading, ground maintenance and the video scoreboard, Dennis does it all.  Dennis is a resident of Poway, and is married to Sandy Childers.  Dennis himself comes from a rodeo background as a professional bull rider.  Living that life ensures that preparing a venue for today's cowboys is something Dennis takes very serious.  So if you see Dennis on the grounds, be sure to extend you hand and thank him for all of his hard work.  We know we certainly appreciate him.
