Our volunteers: the key to success!

We are not afraid to admit it: the volunteers of the Ayer’s Cliff Rodeo are one of the keys to the success of the event. Without them, it would be impossible to put on a four-day event, and they all deserve a proud and heartfelt thank you.

If you would like to be part of the Ayer’s Cliff Rodeo family for our next edition, June 16-19, 2022, please fill out the form below. If you have any questions in the meantime, do not hesitate to contact us by email.

We look forward to working with you!
