We are excited to invite you to the inaugural Spring RoundUp Intercollegiate Rodeo at the Santa Maria Elks Rodeo Grounds!

We are bringing college rodeo athletes from all over the West Coast Region to put on a show for Santa Maria and surrounding communities on March 14th & 15th, 2024 with gates opening at 5:00pm each evening and rodeo action beginning at 6:30pm. 


•  The March 14th performance will showcase contestants competing for a spot in the Top 10  qualifying them to the “Short Round”.
•  The March 15th Performance will be the “Short Round” where the contestants compete for the Spring RoundUp Championships!


General Admission Tickets fill the bleachers, and give you a great view of the entire arena. They look straight across from the bucking chutes, and give you a birds eye view of the entire arena for the roping, steer wrestling and barrel racing! These tickets do not have assigned seats, so arrive early to check out the midway vendors, grab some food, get a beer, and get your favorite spot in the stands before the competitions starts!


For a front row seat to the action, a Box Seat will put you right on the arena fence. Box Seats are available as whole box purchases – so get together with a group of 8 – and get front row seats! Additional Boxes have individual seats available by the seat, for a great view just feet from the action.


If interested in a VIP Experience, take a look at the Cactus Corral Tent and the VIP Tent Options. There are full tables available in 10 seat, 5 seat, and 4 seat options. These tables will have access to complimentary barbeque appetizers and a cash bar. While these tables are available to purchase, they can also be selected as part of a sponsorship, which can be coordinated by reaching out to or calling 805-357-6324.
