We're not sure if you will be required to learn all the dance moves to "Fancy Like," but we are betting against it.

But you are more than welcome to kick up your heels anyway you choose, and help support the University of Montana Rodeo Team at their annual Cowboy Ball. The Montana Rodeo team's premier fundraising event and largest western event in Montana is happening Saturday, October 09, 2021. Yep, it's back this year and they can't wait to cut loose and have lots of fun.

Doors open at 5:30. Come see the transformation of the Lolo Peak Arena into a western palace. Be sure to bring a hearty appetite for gourmet fare featuring thick cuts of prime rib.

No need to polish your boots, it’s a dirt floor and anything goes. Play the "heads and tails" game with University of Montana President Seth Bodnar and work off that big dinner with dancing to a local favorite, ShoDown.
