WRPR 2017 Contestant Letter >


*Contestant entrance to the Merrill Festival Grounds will be on Memorial Dr instead of 6th Street as it has in the past.  Past, Current, and Future construction has made this necessary, and we hope that it’s more convenient for the contestants. (coming from US 51, turn left on Hwy 64 into town, turn right onto Memorial Dr. from the 2nd Kwik Trip and watch for signs, coming from Hwy 64 west, follow Hwy 64 through town to Kwik Trip and turn left onto Memorial Dr. and watch for signs)

We appreciate all of our contestants and we prove it by our hospitality. If you’ve never been to the Wisconsin River Pro Rodeo, give us a try. We treat our contestants like royalty with awesome food, free haircuts, feed for your horses and shavings for bedding, just to name a few things we do for you. We try to make your stay with us just a little more comfortable.
