The Missouri Gay Rodeo Association Inc is an all-inclusive, all volunteer, non-profit organization that dedicates itself to preserving the western lifestyle, producing rodeos and raising funds for charitable organizations within our community.


We are a 501 (c) (3) corporation who produces The Show-Me State Rodeo each year. We are an affiliated chapter of the International Gay Rodeo Association (IGRA) who sanctions the rodeo. Any profits we make from the rodeo are given back to our community by donating to our Charity Partners.

Our charities for 2022 are Wishing Well Equine Rescue & Rehabilitation and American Cancer Society.


We are pleased to announce that we are kicking off the 2022 season of IGRA rodeos. Please check out our website and the IGRA website for more details of upcoming events and rodeos.



In 2022, the Missouri Gay Rodeo Association (MGRA) is celebrating our 36th year as an active organization.
