The Manawa Mid-Western Rodeo
Over the past 60 years the Mid- Western Rodeo has meant over 1 million dollars in revenue to local businesses in Manawa. The Manawa Lions have donated over $700,000 to schools, the rescue squad, parks, high school scholarship fund, and other civic organizations. 15,000 people attend the rodeo each year to watch not 27 but the 350 entrants competing for not $2,000 but a $32,000 purse plus entry fees.

And that is truly what legends are made of. Thank you to all of our Mid-Western Rodeo Sponsors.
