July 15th and 16th are packed with some of the best NRA Rodeo in the region. Three Forks throws a great party with surrounding events for the entire family. Getting the most fun out of this weekend simply requires a little planning.

Three Forks has been hosting an annual rodeo since 1946. (OK, not in 2020.) Now THAT is some impressive history. It is a welcoming, family friendly and a not-to-miss event. Three Forks is just a cool town to hang out in for a few days.

PRO TIP: If you have extra time and like to golf, check out Headwaters Golf Course. You can't miss it as you roll into town off of I-90.
