WELCOME TO THE BIRTHPLACE OF
THE MODERN DAY RODEO
Welcome to the home of the World's Oldest Continuous Rodeo! Each year, we proudly present the Gary Hardt Memorial Rodeo and the World's Oldest Continuous Rodeo. This storied tradition has been alive and well in the Rim Country for over 137 years.
Our rodeo has been recognized as the "Best Small Town Rodeo" by True West Magazine in 2011, attracting thousands of visitors to Payson annually to experience the rich rodeo heritage that we have here.
