POMPANO BEACH FISHING RODEO The City of Pompano Beach hosts a variety of Special events all through out the year, there is always something to do or see wether it be the Craft Shows, Music Concerts, Parades etc. However, there is one event that is unique to Pompano Beach and has been a city tradition dating all the way back to 1965 when it commenced and it is known as the Pompano Beach Fishing Rodeo. This event is held annually on the third weekend of May it is a two day fishing tournament and has been going strong for over fiftyone years now and counting. This tournament is held by a non-profit corporation, who also participate actively in our community with marine conservation efforts and projects. This event has attracted local residents, tourist, fisherman, sponsors and on lookers just passing by. In order to participate you must register yourself up prior to the event, the Wednesday before Friday there is a pre-party for all the fisherman competing and it is a good time to meet the boat captains. The fishermen will fish Friday and Saturday until 12pm, then the anglers will have a chance to weigh in their fish and tidy up to return later on in the late afternoon where the official After Party begins and the prizes and trophies will be handed out to the fisherman with the heaviest weighing fish. The after party has catered food from local restaurants, music, guest speakers and more all open to the community as a whole. It is a great time for all participating and competing, brings friends, families and the community together all while keeping a Pompano Beach tradition alive.
