Rodeo adds Cole Swindell to reboot of 2020 lineup

FORT MADISON – The Tri-State Rodeo Chairman, Tony Johnson, stated “For over seventy years, the Tri-State Rodeo has been a yearly gathering for so many of us. Year after year we see generations of families coming in from all over the Midwest (and further) to enjoy a week of activities in Fort Madison, Iowa. It has been a difficult year, for each of us in our own ways. But I wanted to start this year off by saying, on behalf of the Tri-State Rodeo, thank you and we have missed you!”
The Tri-State Rodeo is proud to announce that 5 of the 6 musical artists announced in 2020 have been rescheduled for the 2021 Tri-State Rodeo.
