Fay Ranches, Long Standing Sponsor of the Big Sky PBR

Big Sky PBR is considered “Big Sky’s Biggest Week” – a week of community events including three nights of action-packed Touring Pro Division PBR bull riding, fundraisers, vendor village and more. This community event is quite the production. This event utilizes around 100 volunteers, 76 bucking bulls, 40 of the world’s best cowboys, live bands, and of course, sponsors. Fay Ranches has proudly been a Barrel and Golden Buckle sponsor of the PBR rodeo since day one.

 Big Sky PBR is grateful for Fay Ranches, an amazing partner of Big Sky PBR and with us every year since the inaugural event. Their support helps Big Sky PBR generate over $200,000 for charity every year and millions in economic impact for the area of Big Sky, Montana.” Ersin Ozer, Outlaw Partners.

Each year, the PBR donates back to the community with the proceeds that are raised from the Big Sky Art Auction, the Big Sky Community Rodeo and Big Sky Community Street Dance, a mutton bustin’ family day, donations, the Calcutta auction, and a community bingo night to honor Dick Allgood. This year, more than $200,000 was raised for charitable donations.

The Big Sky PBR event was voted by the top PBR bull riders in the world as ‘PBR Event of the Year’ at the NFR seven times in a row! Fay Ranches agrees. Our team not only looks forward to watching Big Sky come alive with the rodeo events, concerts, and bystanders embracing the Montana lifestyle and also supporting an event that strives to enhance our community.

A Tribute to Community Cornerstones of the Paulina Valley

Small towns and communities anchor many of the rural ranches and farms that are represented by Fay Ranches. These are often communities with one general store, a population in town of fewer than 30 people, and where everyone knows everyone’s kids. These are towns where families have lived for generations and where the closest high […]
