95th Annual International Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo

July 27 - 29, 2023


The Grand Isle International Tarpon Rodeo is the oldest fishing tournament in the U.S. It takes place on the last weekend of July.

The quaint island of Grand Isle, with a population of 1,500 residents, swells to more than 25,000 festival-goers over the three days of the rodeo. Often referred to as the "grand-daddy of fishing rodeos,” the Grand Isle Tarpon Rodeo features live music, crab racing for kids each day., unique Louisiana cuisine, and artisans from across the region. New this year will be a corn hole competition. 

Registration for the event is only onsite anytime during the festival weekend & allows you entry to the tournament, raffle tickets & festival merch.
