HISTORY

The Dixie Roundup was started in 1935 as a joint effort of the local American Legion and Lions Clubs. These events were held on Armistice Day (November 11) at the old race track in St. George.

After a few years, the Lions Club became the sole sponsor. In the early 1940s, the event was moved up to September.
