Tri-State Rodeo Announces Musical Performers for 73rd Annual Event

The Tri-State Rodeo is announcing that 5 of the 6 musical artists announced in 2020 have been rescheduled for the 2021 Tri-State Rodeo.  Nelly, Mark Chesnutt, and David Lee Murphy will be on the main stage and the Joe Stamm Band and Stumptown inside the Bud Light Stockyard this September.  The rodeo also announces that Cole Swindell has been added as the Saturday Night Headliner this year.  Music on the main stage starts immediately after the rodeo ends each night and will be followed by entertainment inside the stockyard.

Tri-State Rodeo Chairman Tony Johnson says “For over seventy years, the Tri-State Rodeo has been a yearly gathering for so many of us.  Year after year we see generations of families coming in from all over the Midwest (and further) to enjoy a week of activities in Fort Madison, Iowa.  It has been a difficult year, for each of us in our own ways.  But I wanted to start this year off by saying, on behalf of the Tri-State Rodeo, thank you and we have missed you.”

Tickets for the 73rd Tri-State Rodeo will go on sale Friday April 23 at 8 a.m.  Tickets will be available online at or by contacting the rodeo ticket office.
