“Catch ‘em, if You Can! ” – EVENT


March 18, 2023 • Mansfield Park • 2886 Texas 16 – Bandera

Head to Bandera on Saturday, March 18th and go hog wild at the Bandera Ham Rodeo! Come watch as contestants of all ages compete to catch a wild hog in a calf scramble style event. 

Think you have what it takes to compete? Get there early and sign up. Age divisions start as young as 3 years old and go all the way up to adults. Kids participate in a “hog touch”, while adult teams of two must catch, bag and get their hog across the line as fast as they can in this timed event. The size of the hogs increases with the age of the participants. 

Prizes include belt buckles and more! Hy O Silver has donated a total of 16 beautiful belt buckles that will be awarded to first and second place in four event divisions.

Formerly the Wild Hog Explosion, this family friendly event has been entertaining folks in the hill country for 17 years. The Bandera Ham Rodeo is put on by the Bandera Wranglers, an organization whose mission is to bring the community together to support those in need. They are mentoring the next generation of Wranglers by giving them a common purpose and moral call-to-arms to bring Bandera together as a stronger community.

There will be retail and food/drink vendors onsite and live music! Gates open at 8:00am, Hog Catch registration starts at 9:00am and the event starts at 11:00am.
