44th Colorado River Round Up  


Sandy Chandler will be the Grand Marshall of the 44th Colorado River Round Up presented by the Colorado River Medical Center on April 1-2, 2022. Sandy's volunteer work at the Needles softball fields has kept those fields maintained and ready for play for years. We appreciate his long-standing assistance at the Needles Rodeo Grounds and support of the Needles Rodeo Association. He and his family, wife Susan and daughters, Abby and Alex, are loyal community supporters of other organizations and events and we thank and recognize him for all work and efforts in Needles.

two young ladies..

It is with regret that we will not be presenting the 44th Colorado River Round Up in 2021​. In order to comply with California and San Bernardino County covid-19 restrictions, we must cancel this year's needles rodeo. we hope to come back bigger and better in 2022.

The rodeo dates will be April 1-2. 2022.

We are proud of our local rodeo!

The Needles Rodeo Association is preparing for the 44th Annual Colorado River Round Up Rodeo set for Friday, April 1 and Saturday, April 2, 2022.  Our Board Members are volunteers who work hard to give the tri-state area the only local rodeo. Our board members grew up in Needles and went to the Needles Rodeo every year.  We try to continue the tradition that we have all enjoyed for the past almost 43 years.  It is our hope that you and your children and grandchildren will leave the Needles Rodeo with the same fond memories that we have.

Thanks to our sponsors who support us year after year. Because of their support and other generous donations, we are able to put needed monies back into the tri-state youth organizations.  We also give scholarships to area high school seniors.

The Colorado River Round Up Rodeo is a GCPRA sanctioned rodeo.  We are a non-profit organization and all contributions to the Needles Rodeo Association are tax deductible.
