About the
Sikeston Jaycees

Volunteer Organization that makes a significant impact to the LOCAL community

The Sikeston Junior Chamber of Commerce is composed of young community members who share a common goal of making Sikeston and surrounding areas a better place. A volunteer organization, the Sikeston Jaycees work on various projects throughout the year to raise money to donate to charities and non-profit organizations. While there are many service organizations in the area, the Sikeston Jaycees stand out as having one of the most significant economic impacts in the region, as well as having the honor of hosting one of the region’s largest and most well-known events, the Sikeston Jaycee Bootheel Rodeo.

First Rodeo Held

The first Sikeston Jaycee Bootheel Rodeo was held September 17-20, 1953. Today, the Rodeo is the premier Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) event in the region, bringing in almost 40,000 people each year.

Visitors Annually

The Sikeston Rodeo not only has the distinction of being the largest rodeo event in the region, but also has the honor of being one of the top 40 rodeos in the entire nation.


The proceeds from this event are donated back into the community through various channels.

Organizations have Benefited from Proceeds

$8 Million +

The Jaycees do not just provide monetary donations to organizations, but the rodeo packs every hotel room and restaurant in town, bringing over $8 million dollars in revenue to the area’s businesses during rodeo week. The Sikeston Jaycee Bootheel Rodeo has become an institution in the community and for the past 70 years has grown side-by-side with Sikeston to become one of Southeast Missouri’s premier events.
