The Origins of Helzapoppin' Rodeo Grounds

In the early days, Hellzapoppin’ attracted Hollywood Cowboys like Gene Autry. The festivities included street dances, a parade, a carnival, a rodeo and the annual Cotton Queen coronation.

Today, Hellzapoppin’ Arena continues to host an annual Rodeo during Buckeye Days in January. The event draws Rodeo professionals from around the country and features a cattle drive down Monroe Ave.

The Buckeye Chamber of Commerce started Hellzapoppin’ Days to celebrate Buckeye’s rich Cowboy heritage in 1935.
