History:
The first ever Homestead Rodeo was held at Municipal Park on November 11, 1949.

On February 1, 1952 the Homestead Rodeo Association was formed by seventeen original members; local businessmen who shared a love of horses and the excitement of the sport of rodeo.

The new HRA presented its first rodeo in March of 1952. In November of 1952 the first rodeo was held in a new permanent rodeo arena; which was a five acre tract just southeast of the ball fields leased from South Dade Farms. The HRA struggled to finance the rodeo through the early fifties, with members financing the organization out of their own pockets. In the mid fifties they decided to hold the rodeo only once a year & things began to prosper. The rodeo had now become a major event in the sleepy agricultural town of Homestead. The South Dade News Leader newspaper would publish a special rodeo section each year.
