3000 seat Grandstand!

The new grandstand is complete, the 150 x 250 ft. rodeo arena is up, the footing is in, and we’re ready to rodeo.  The above photo was taken during the Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo in June, 2016.  There are 2000 stadium style 21″ seats and 1000 bench seats with backs.   A lot of hard work by the members of our committee went into making the grounds what it is today.  Special thanks to the City of Merrill for making this all possible!

The Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo and their Ram Rodeo partner, Brickner Park City and the Brickner Family have always held the Armed Services in high regards for all of the sacrifices they have made to keep this country free and strong. So when the decision was made to honor the armed services with the Friday night rodeo performance “Military Appreciation Night”, it was a simple decision to honor our veterans by donating to the Never Forgotten Honor Flight. Bryan Bloch said “We hope this is just the beginning of a tradition at the Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo, and would like to see it continue in the future”. “It was an honor to be able to sponsor the Military Appreciation Night at the Rodeo and send 5 Lincoln County Veterans to Washington D.C. to see their Memorials” said Jim Brickner. “We all agree that next year is a go so put us on your calendar June 12 2015”.


The Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo has been awarded the distinction of being the “BEST MEDIUM SIZE RODEO” in the Great Lakes Circuit of the Professional Rodeo Cowboy’s Association (PRCA) for 2011. Read More >
