Keeping the spirit of western heritage alive in hearts and minds
Founded in 1978 by a group of Gilbert businessmen and ranchers, Gilbert Promotional Group (GPC) hosted many of the Gilbert Days events. Gilbert Old Fashioned 4th of July Celebration, Gilbert Days Parade, Gilbert Days Team roping, Gilbert Days Pony Express, Barrel Racing, and other Rodeos are some of the events sponsored by GPC. Gilbert Days were instrumental in giving the Town of Gilbert the prestigious honor of being named the 36th Best Place to live in the nation by CNN’s Money Magazine.
The GPC had leased and maintained the Gilbert Rodeo Park from the town of Gilbert since 1983. However, in February of 2011, the lease was not renewed, and GPC hosted its last rodeo in Gilbert Park. They want to continue to provide for the needs of fellow equestrians in their community. And, they look forward to serving organizations such as the National Barrel Horse Association, American Junior Rodeo Association, and Queen Creek 4H, to name a few. They want to continue to provide a place where local equestrians can ride.
Their primary goal and objective are to continue to promote the beautiful Town of Gilbert and its western heritage. They are striving to become an integral part of Gilbert’s Master Plan process to promote and provide for the needs of fellow equestrians in Gilbert.
