General Information

The Missouri Gay Rodeo Association (MGRA) is celebrating 32 years, 1986 - 2018.  We are a 501 (c) (3) corporation who produces The Show-Me State Rodeo each year during Labor Day weekend. We are an affiliated chapter of the International Gay Rodeo Association (IGRA) who sanctions the rodeo. We are an all volunteer organization and any profits we make from the rodeo are given back to our community by donating to our Charity Partner, KC Passages.

The MGRA board of directors is working diligently to produce the Show-Me State Rodeo in 2018.  We invite all contestants and spectators to join us for a great weekend at Emiliano's Ranch and Arena and the Show-Me State Rodeo.
