News & Notes from the rodeo trail

The Reno (Nev.) Rodeo is celebrating its 100th anniversary and the Nevada Historical Society is tipping its cap to the city’s longest running special event with a new exhibit. On May 15, the Historical Society will unveil, “Reno Rodeo: 100 Years of the Wildest Richest Rodeo in the West.” The exhibit includes historic artifacts, artwork and photographs that range from the event’s beginnings in 1919 to present day and focuses on the people who were instrumental in writing the rodeo’s history. The exhibit will also include vignettes of Nevada cowboys and cowgirls who made history as champions at their home-state rodeo, including Joe Marvel, of Battle Mountain, Jade Corkill, of Fallon, Dakota Eldridge, of Elko, and Charley Gardner, of Ruby Valley. Today, the Reno Rodeo is one of the top 10 regular-season rodeos in terms of prize money sanctioned by the PRCA and has an annual economic impact on the region of more than $50 million. The exhibit, which will be in place through the summer at the Nevada Historical Society, will be in place through the summer, and is curated by Nevada Historical Society staff and Guy Clifton, a former journalist and author of the book, “Reno Rodeo: A History, the First 80 Years.” The exhibit will remain in place through July. The 2019 Reno Rodeo is June 20-29.
