About Santa Maria Elks Rodeo and Parade

The Elks Recreation Foundation was established in 1943 when it held its first fundraising event, a dance at the Veteran’s Memorial Building. They used the funds raised from that event to stage the first Elks Rodeo in 1944. The initial two day event was preceded each day by a mounted parade from the Vet’s Memorial Building to the Santa Maria Fairgrounds. The first Rodeo netted Elks Recreation nearly $3000.00 that first year and a long history of fundraising to support local youth sports and recreation was born. Since that time, Elks Recreation, Inc. has distributed over $10,931,837.97 to local youth programs through our Annual Elks Queen Contest.
