Los Amigos del Rodeo

About Us

In 2011 the Los Amigos Del Rodeo (Friends of the Rodeo) club was established to help raise funds to make improvements to the Salinas Sports Complex, home of the California Rodeo Salinas. To date, the Los Amigos del Rodeo club has raised approximately $275,000 since its inception!

The Los Amigos Del Rodeo club is an exclusive group limited to just 85 memberships with 2 people allowed per membership, annual dues are $2,000 and is a 501C3 charitable nonprofit.

Each membership includes entrance to the Members Only LADR VIP Room, Daily Box Seats, parking passes and a Friday night members only after party featuring live music by The Money Band.

Once you are checked in to the L.A.D.R. VIP Room, each day will present you with a different and incredible dining experience, as well as all the premium alcohol you can drink and daily live entertainment! Our LADR team focuses on giving you the best service in our air conditioned, upscale VIP room while you enjoy the Rodeo performance on one of the big screen TV’s.

The VIP room is a 21 and over venue

Additionally, the LADR hosts an annual member dinner that gives Los Amigos Del Rodeo members the unique opportunity to vote as to where their sponsorship money is allocated.
