About the Gyp Hills Roundup Rodeo

In June of 2021, the Medicine Lodge Peace Treaty Association Rodeo Committee began hosting a rodeo sanctioned by Kansas Pro Rodeo Association. It’s called the Gyp Hills Roundup Rodeo as a tribute to the historic McLain Roundup Rodeo that was held in Sun City from approximately 1922 to 1939.

From all accounts, the McLain Roundup was a thrilling spectacle, and it is the committee’s goal to bring back just as entertaining a weekend for folks near and far!

Rodeo stock and production is handled by Medicine River Rodeo Company.

The committee is pleased to utilize the excellent facilities at the Memorial Peace Park rodeo arena for the Gyp Hills Roundup Rodeo, in addition to their Peace Treaty rodeos in September each year.
