From Hwy 1 (Trans-Canada Hwy), take Hwy 21 north to
Township Road 263. Turn right (east) on Hwy 263.
Rockyford is at the intersection of Hwy 263 and Range
Road 233. From Main Street, Rockyford (where you will
find three important Brokeback buildings), walk
approximately two blocks northeast on 1st Avenue E to the
rodeo grounds. See:
Jack almost starved rodeoin’ in little towns such as
Electra. The filmmakers used a wooden fence and different
camera angles to disguise the fact that this is also the
site of the Childress rodeo, where Jack’s overtures
were more warmly received.
Should you find yourself in Rockyford in
late July, why not enjoy the rodeo yourself? For
information, call (403) 533-3950. See also:
