What are some of the reasons my application would be denied?

The Brooks Kinsmen Pro Rodeo works hard to ensure that everyone enjoys themselves at our event - this includes participants as well as vendors. We carefully check each application's sale items and select our vendors based on the breadth of their products. We only permit limited numbers selling similar products to ensure that the market is not saturated. We want vendors to make money and have a good time.

If you are selected to be a vendor you will be sent a package via email with directions on where, who & when.

The fees vary by the type of vendor. Please check out our application form to find out what fees may be for you.
