A greener rodeo!

For a few years now, the Ayer’s Cliff Rodeo has been implementing many actions to protect the environment and to reduce the amount of waste.

Here are some examples:

Recycle & Compost

  • You will find waste sorting, composting and recycling stations strategically located on the festival site.
  • The dishes served during the dinners organized by the Ayer’s Cliff Rodeo are 100% compostable.

Reducing waste

  • In order to minimize water bottles on the site, each volunteer receives a free water bottle with the Ayer’s Cliff Rodeo logo upon arrival on the site.
  • Water bottles will also be available for purchase on site for those who wish to purchase them.
  • Our 2018 program will be available online in .pdf format; come and consult it as often as you like.

Water for everyone

In an effort to minimize water bottle waste, a water kiosk is available where you can fill your bottles and water bottles for free. Bring your bottle with you!

Other environmental actions

  • Our team uses bicycles to move around the festival site.
  • We have a sorting team to optimize waste recycling
  • Reusable water bottles for volunteers and employees
  • Reduction or even elimination of the consumption of plastic water bottles
  • Use of reusable dishes and utensils for meals
  • Clear signage and display for sorting and recycling

Other social and economic actions

  • Promotion of the next generation by producing the winners of competitions such as highlighting emerging talents during the national anthem
  • A free festival day on Sunday for children accompanied by their parents (12 and -)
  • Loans, exchanges and agreements with community organizations
  • Several thousand dollars generated in town – thanks to the purchases of the Rodeo but also to the expenses made by its festival-goers
  • 80% of equipment purchases and rentals made with local companies
  • + than 30 partnerships with local and national companies
  • More than 1,200 overnight stays generated in the region during the event

You too can do your part!

  • Think before you throw and choose the best option among our islands. These are strategically located throughout the site and allow you to recycle, throw away or compost.
  • Get your own reusable water bottle to avoid buying and using water bottles. Plus, it’s a souvenir to take home with you!
  • Prioritize carpooling to Ayer’s Cliff.
