The oldest rodeo in Utah celebrated its 94th year in business this year and it didn’t disappoint, with some of the world’s top cowboys and cowgirls bringing their chops to Tremonton.

It was an extra-special event this time around, providing Box Elder County its first opportunity to showcase the newly expanded Golden Spike Arena for the world. The county completed a $2 million project this year that added thousands of seats to the east and north sides, making it a truly world-class venue for a world-class competition.
