Barretos Rodeo - Cowboy's Peasant Party
The Barretos Rodeo started in 1956 as the first event of its kind in Latin America. Since its first edition, which was held under a circus tent, until now, not only has the event grown and made a name for itself, it has become the most important Brazilian back country cultural reference. With its international repercussion it has become part of the agenda for cowboys the world over.
With its 50th Anniversary in 2005, the Barretos Rodeo is highlighted in the national scene as one of the oldest entertainment events in the country, with a history of growth, success and projection.
Barretos is the birthplace of Brazilian rodeo. It was in this town situated in the interior of the State of São Paulo that the first event of its kind happened in 1956. The Barretos Rodeo, with over half a century of traditions, is currently the largest, most structured and innovative of the country. Celebrating its entry into the second half of the century, Os Independentes, promoters of the event, coordinate the Barretos Rodeo Circuit since 2006 through the National Rodeo League.
The National Rodeo League differs because of its modern format and its exclusive and innovative media plan which is a guarantee of image return to the accredited stages such as the Barretos Rodeo Circuit.
The champion of each stage wins the right to compete in the Finals of the greatest stage of Brazilian rodeo, the Parque do Peão in Barretos during the Barretos Rodeo. To qualify for a NRL (National Rodeo League) stage the event must follow numerous technical and quality standards determined by the NRL organizers. Animal welfare is crucial for the event to qualify as one of the stages.
As well as all the attractions that manifest the Brazilian country culture such as the cooking, music, dance and all its entertainments, the Parque do Peão has many monuments that celebrate the rodeo, its professionals and animals which were elaborated by renowned artists.
Horse: Situated in front of the Administration Offices it was designed by Alex Periscinoto, one of the country’s greatest publicists.
Rosette: Symbol of Os Independentes located at the entrance of the Parque do Peão. Designed by Cesário Ceperó and Pedro Perozzi.

Cowboy Monument: Standing 27m tall and weighing around 170 tonnes this enormous cowboy was idealized by Valter Corsino and developed by artist Juvenal Irene, it represents and honours all rodeo professionals and is situated at the Park´s main entrance.
Cowboy Museum: Built in the shape of a circus the Cowboy Museum makes a reference to the first Barretos Rodeo which happened under a circus tent. Many objects that tell the story of the Rodeo and the Brazilian country way of life are also found at the Museum.
