On October 2, 2021, The Amenia-Wassaic Community Organization hosted the 1st Hudson Valley Rodeo at Keane Stud in Amenia, NY.  Supported by the Silo Ridge Community Foundation, the rodeo was topped off with an evening concert featuring country music star Chris Janson, along with special guest Ian Flanigan. All net proceeds from this community event benefited the Amenia-Wassaic Community Organization and its programs. The rodeo and concert were a sold out success! Stay tuned for 2022 event dates!

Can’t wait for the next one.

What a great time we had.  Thank you so much for doing this.  Can’t wait for the next one. @NancyLonigro

I look forward to coming again

I had VIP concert tickets for tonight.  I just wanted to tell you what a wonderful job you all did.  The venue was just stunning.  Staff were friendly.  Food was amazing.  Your bathroom attendee was just amazing at keeping things clean and safe.  I felt very comfortable and that says a lot since I’ve not been out hardly at all since this pandemic started.  I look forward to coming again if you do this again.  Thank you for a fun night.  @GinaWheelerZwart
