Grey Highlands RAM Rodeo is back for another year in support of the new Markdale Hospital

Due to the overwhelming public response to the inaugural Grey Highlands RAM Rodeo in 2021 that raised $35,641.73 for the new Markdale Hospital’s Together in Care campaign, the Municipality of Grey Highlands (MGH) has announced that tickets are now on sale for the 2022 edition of the Grey Highlands RAM Rodeo, taking place from May 27 to 29 at the Osprey Community Centre in Feversham.

Championed by Grey Highlands’ Mayor Paul McQueen, this community driven event brings together business and community partners to raise funds for the long-awaited new Markdale Hospital, which is slated to open in 2023.

With the support of the Feversham Kinsmen, this year’s event will be bigger and better than the 2021 edition, including an additional Friday evening rodeo performance (along with the performances on Saturday and Sunday), to make sure there is seating for everyone who is interested in attending (the event sold out in 2021, despite less than ideal weather).

This year’s event will also include a country and western dance on Friday evening following the rodeo, featuring the Cara Smith Band; a cowboy breakfast on Saturday and Sunday mornings; and a beer tent on Friday evening and Saturday afternoon, all due to the MGH partnership with the Feversham Kinsmen.

In 2021, tickets sold out quickly, and organizers encourage you to book your tickets now to avoid disappointment. Online tickets are available for the rodeo performances, the country and western dance and the cowboy breakfasts. Purchasing adult tickets online before the event also entitles you to $5 off an adult rodeo ticket.

All proceeds from the 2022 Grey Highlands RAM Rodeo will be supporting the new Markdale Hospital’s Together in Care campaign.

Get out your cowboy boots, gather your friends and family, and book your tickets now for this wonderful weekend of old-fashioned, high-energy entertainment, featuring the Canadian Cowgirls, a kids’ rodeo, trick riding, barrel racing, pole bending, and bull and bronc riding — all in support of the new Markdale Hospital.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.
