Community celebrates Austyn Robinson's crowning as Chelan County Rodeo Queen

Posted

CHELAN COUNTY – Chelan County Fair and Rodeo Queen Austyn Robinson was officially crowned on Saturday, Feb. 10.

The Chelan County Fair and Rodeo Queen Fundraiser and Coronation Kickoff Party was held at the Mission Creek Community Club Building in Cashmere.

Kristen Mattson, a member of the Chelan County Fair Board and the Chelan County Rodeo Queen Committee, said the event was a success.

“It was a packed house,” Mattson said. “Filled with local supporters, friends, and family who came to support Austyn.”

Other area rodeo queens attended the event to support Robinson. Rodeo queens in attendance were Benton Franklin Fair and Kennewick Rodeo Queen Lexi Hagins, Moses Lake Round-Up Rodeo Queen Alexis Shoults, Othello Rodeo Queen Milie Cobb, Coulee City Last Stand Rodeo Queen Kaylee Stump, Appleatchee Riders Queen Izzy Black, Caribou Trail Junior Rodeo Queen Camri Peterson and Omak Stampede Rodeo Queen Eryne Anderson.

As a rodeo queen, Robinson serves as an ambassador for the sport of rodeo, the fair, and her community. With this role there will be a lot of travel to promote the fair and rodeo and support other rodeo queens.

“Funds were raised to help Austyn travel to other rodeos this year representing the Chelan County Fair and Rodeo,” Mattson said. “There was a 50/50 raffle, silent and live auction, and also a desert dash.”

On Feb. 16 and 17, Robinson and her horse Cookie attended the first rodeo in the Columbia River Rodeo Circuit, the Yakima Showdown at the Sundome.
