“Home of the prison rodeo”

It is assumed that the Angola Prison Rodeo was initially established to provide a source of recreation for the inmate population as well as to provide a source of entertainment for employees of the Louisiana State Penitentiary and the immediate surrounding community. Eventually, the Angola Prison was expanded to include spectators from the general public. Recognizing the potential for the growth of this unique event, since the 1995 rodeo season the Angola Prison Rodeo Committee has strived to provide a professional rodeo production which would prove beneficial to the internal inmate economy, but would also be beneficial to the Parish of West Feliciana tourism industry. Soliciting help and cooperation from the inmate population provided an important mechanism to protect and improve the quality of the Angola Prison Rodeo—both economically and environmentally. At the conclusion of a hugely successful 2001 rodeo season, the Angola Prison Rodeo Committee demonstrated its commitment to promote a primary goal of the Louisiana State Penitentiary—rehabilitation. Accepting the prison’s strategy to enhance rehabilitative efforts by providing inmates housed at Louisiana State Penitentiary with an environment that enables positive behavior changes, the Rodeo Committee voted to dedicate proceeds (after expenses) from the 2001 rodeo to the construction of an interfaith chapel at Angola’s Camp-D housing unit. The objective of the Angola Prison Rodeo remains to provide the prison population at Louisiana State Penitentiary with an opportunity for positive behavior changes.
