The Rodeo Clown Reunion

The National Rodeo Clown Reunion will bring more than 60 rodeo clowns and bullfighters from all across the United States and Canada to spend three days in the Stockyards entertaining and reminiscing about the decades they spent entertaining crowds and protecting cowboys. While they are dressed in greasepaint and baggy pants, rodeo clowns serve a serious function in the rodeo arena by providing protection and distracting the bulls from the fallen bull riders.Rodeo clowns from 17 states and one province in Canada will be on hand including ProRodeo Hall of Fame inductee George Doak. While you would expect most rodeo clowns to be from the southwest, Joe McBride from Middleton, N.Y., and Chuck Fisher from Centerville, Mich., will be making the long trek to Fort Worth.Events planned for the weekend will give fans an opportunity to have their photographs made with and collect autographs from these rodeo greats. A variety of events geared toward the younger crowd are planned including a stick horse rodeo and more. The rodeo clowns will be located in various businesses in the Stockyards and will be recognized during Saturday’s   Stockyards Championship Rodeo.  They will also be performing some of their classic skits and acts during the rodeo.  There will also be a panel discussion on Saturday to discuss the work and history of rodeo clowns, often referred to as “Greasepaint Matadors.”
