The Gold Buckle Club

The “Gold Buckle” designation is reserved for individuals or companies whose significant contributions to the Ellensburg Rodeo support events or projects that would not be possible otherwise. As a major sponsor, Gold Buckle members are very important to us and we wish to express our appreciation by extending an invitation to participate in the following events, awards, and benefits we provide our Gold Buckle Club.

Special Events

Each January you will be invited to be our guests to the Royal Court Coronation Banquet. Dinner and entertainment are provided at this gala affair during which the Ellensburg Rodeo Queen and Princess are selected.

During the summer the Gold Buckle Club gets together for a summer party.  The location varies from year to year and it is always tremendously fun.

The Thursday before Rodeo weekend you will be invited to attend a Crown Royal Kick-Off Party. It is a fun-filled and relaxing way for you and your spouse or guest to kick-off an exciting weekend. 

On Rodeo Weekend Sunday, you and your spouse or guest will be invited to the Gold Buckle Rendezvous at the Springwood Ranch Party Barn. You will be able to purchase additional tickets for up to four guests.


  • Presentation of a champion-style Gold Buckle to contributors. In addition to your gold buckle, you and your spouse will be presented with a sterling silver name badge.
  • We will provide free and convenient V.I.P. parking for access to the rodeo grounds.
  • You will receive special recognition during the Ellensburg Rodeo Grand Entry and in the rodeo program.
  • We will reserve two complimentary seats for you and your spouse or guest for all performances. An additional four tickets per day for your family members and/or your personal guests may be purchased. 
  • We invite you and your spouse or guest to visit the Gold Buckle Building where you will be provided with refreshments throughout the rodeo.
