One of the goals of the Parade is to celebrate the history and diversity of the Santa Maria Valley.  Whether you like marching bands, decorated floats, antique cars or equestrian groups, the Parade has something for everyone.  We do not charge an entry fee and the Parade is open to all who would like to participate.Our nationally recognized Rodeo provides four days of non-stop action for locals as well as guest from across the country.

The Elks Rodeo Queen contest allows local non-profits to raise funds for their organizations. In addition, the Golden Circle of Champions program raises thousands of dollars for distribution to local families facing cancer.  Due to its success this program it has been adopted by PRCA Rodeos across the nation. As the cost of staging the Parade continues to increase,we rely on the support of our many Sponsors.

These Sponsors are our sole source of funds.  As the date of the Parade grows nearer, we will be reaching out to past Sponsors and well as new supporters seeking help to fund the Parade.  Any support you can offer will be deeply appreciated. The Parade is put on each year by an all-volunteer committee.  I would like to thank all of the Volunteers that return year after year to help with the Parade.  Many of our Volunteers have served for over 20 years.   Without their help the Parade would not be possible. We look forward to a safe and successful Parade and invite all Members and their families to come out and have a good time!
