The iconic Warwick Rodeo Street Parade is back!
17 September 2021
With big cash prizes up for grabs, Southern Downs Regional Council is calling on local businesses and community organisations to be part of Warwick’s iconic annual street parade by entering a float or even a decorated bicycle or two.
The 2021 Warwick Rodeo Street Parade is as iconic to the town as the world renowned Rodeo and Campdraft itself and this year’s parade promises some exciting new inclusions guaranteed to make this the ‘must-do’ family-friendly event on the October calendar.
Council is pleased to once again welcome local industry leader John Dee as the major sponsor of the parade in 2021 and thank them for partnering with us on such a significant community event.
Southern Downs Councillor Marco Gliori said that this year’s parade theme of ‘Past, Present and Future’ will reflect and celebrate the essence of the community’s rich history and future.
“The parade has a distinguished history as part of the Warwick Rodeo and is an event that our community continues to enjoy today,” Councillor Gliori said.
“In 2021, we want to encourage participation, creativity and enthusiasm for the anticipated return of the parade through who we are, where we’ve come from and where we’re heading.
“We will no doubt once again be welcoming visitors from all over South East Queensland in addition to our regular rodeo families that make Warwick home during the event.
“We want this to be the biggest parade yet so let’s get creative and show the world why Southern Downs is a great place to live, work, play and stay.”
Local community groups, businesses, schools and charities are all encouraged to get involved by contacting Council’s Economic Development and Tourism team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1300 697 372. Nomination forms are available to download here (PDF 231.2KB) and at the Warwick Administration Building at 64 Fitzroy Street. Entrance fee for floats is $10.
The parade will take place on Saturday 30 October from 9.00am.
