CARNEY, MI – June 2nd the 11th Annual Round-UP rodeo arose less than 15 years ago when a number of locals in Carney, Michigan decided there was little for youth to do in their part of the Upper Peninsula. The organizers had to do something that would benefit the community and especially the kids in their community. According to Joe Hudson, president of the rodeo, they figured what they had were animals, horses, cattle, and space to spare. So, they created the 1st Annual Carney Round-UP Rodeo. Now, people from many states away participate yearly.

The community supports the rodeo with more than 100 of the about 300 population volunteering during the event. More than 2,000 people are expected to attend this year.  Check out their Facebook page.

The mission of this non-profit venture is to “raise money to maintain and improve our facility for the benefit of our youth in Upper Peninsula of Michigan!” Located at N13421 J1 Rd, Carney, MI 49812 (Nadeau Township Hall), this Non pro rough stock rodeo features a number of events: amateur bull riding, mini bull riding, mutton bustin, and so on. For the smaller kids, the most popular event is the stick horse races.

The work involved to put this rodeo together is “unbelievable,” says President Hudson. All time central standard time, the schedule of events include Saturday: Speed show at 9am (free to watch and anyone can sign up to compete), Rodeo Performance 5pm, Live band neon detour starting at 8pm (https://www.facebook.com/neon.detour), and Sunday: Breakfast 9am, Cowboy Church at 10am, Crowning of new royalty at noon, and Rodeo Performance at 2 p.m.

Next year, the 12th Annual Carney Round-UP Rodeo will be June 1, 2019.
