Traditional Panamanian Rodeo with a Gringo Twist

Travel & TourismTraditional Panamanian Rodeo with a Gringo Twist, August 29th in La Chorerra - It's that time of year again! The gringo rodeo is back and you are all invited. The events start at around 3 in the afternoon and will carry on late into the night. Every year my family has our rodeo in the areas around Chorrera. Ours is one of the biggest ones of the year, and last year we had almost 3,500 people attend. Being that I am an American, our rodeo is also unique in that many people from the English speaking community attend this event. Last year we had around 300 expats in attendance. This is the perfect opportunity for you to get immersed in some Panamanian culture while still being with other expats. Admission is only $3, and beers are only 60 cents. There will be Panamanian food for sale, as well as singing, dancing, fireworks, rodeo, and a performance by Tipico music star Ulpiano Vergara in the evening. If you have been wanting to see the local side of Panama but weren´t sure where to do it, this is a must do. The rodeo is in a new location this year in the Centro Recreativo Bonanza in Santa Rita De La Chorrera. If you are interested and need information or directions, please call me at 6733-0657 or e-mail me at and I will get all the information for you.

Directions: From the Panamerican Highway between Capira and La Chorrera take the road to Santa Rita and Arenosa. The rodeo will be on the left hand side 3.4kilometers from the highway. The rodeo is about 40 minutes form Panama City and 30 minutes from Coronado.
