The Idaho Rodeo Hall of Fame is dedicated to preserving and promoting Western American Heritage and culture.   We honor the men and women who inspire and exemplify a spirit of excellence that embodies the importance rodeo plays in farming and ranching communities.  We integrate history in the lives of people and families in a way that inspires, educates, and honors the past and embraces the future with its time honored tradition of annual inductions.  Our charitable non-profit organization continues to champion our Western way of life and youth mentorship through fundraising to ensure it remains for generations to come.


If you would like to donate to the Idaho Rodeo Hall of Fame we would be grateful, as we rely on donations for support.  


On May 6, 2013 Lonnie and Charmy LeaVell founded and Incorporated the Idaho Rodeo Hall of Fame and after applying for a 501 (c)(3) designation received nonprofit status for the Idaho Rodeo Hall of Fame from the IRS as a charitable nonprofit February 19, 2014.  On the third Friday and Saturday of October, the IRHF hosts a Cowboy/Cowgirl reunion and Induction ceremony to honor those men and women who embody and perpetuate the western way of life through their exemplary lives, careers and achievements.



In 2015, the Idaho Rodeo Hall of Fame was awarded the Historic Preservation Recognition Award by The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR).
