The mission of the Rio Grande Valley Livestock
Show & Rodeo is to educate our local youth while
promoting agriculture. We provide scholarships
and showmanship award money to help provide financial assistance to students who have proven
academic and leadership abilities, good
citizenship and financial needs. In a never-ending
quest for new and innovative ways to raise funds
for scholarships and the Sale of Champions, the
RGVLS Redfish Rodeo was born.
The Fourth Annual RGVLS Redfish Rodeo was
held June 15-16, 2018 at the Port Isabel Event &
Cultural Center. Friday evening, all of the teams,
the 100 volunteers, along with representatives
from the 30 sponsors were treated to dinner
along with a silent auction and prize raffles. On
Saturday, over 65 boats and a total of 260 anglers
from all walks of life, some as young as four years
old, competed for thousands of dollars in cash
and prizes. In all, through team entry fees,
sponsor dollars, and raffle ticket sales, a total of
over $47,000.00 was raised.
Building on the overwhelming success of the first
annual Redfish Rodeo, the fifth tournament is
scheduled for June 28-29, 2019 at the SPI
Convention Center. We anticipate double the
number of teams, sponsors, volunteers, and fishermen for this year’s event.
