The St. Paul Rodeo Association initiated a Rodeo Hall of Fame in 1998 for those outstanding individuals in various segments of the rodeo over its long history. Inductees can include past champions, stock contractors, contract acts, local committee individuals, and outstanding horses or bulls. Inductees are honored during a steak barbecue each year on the day prior to the commencement of rodeo activities.
