On the last full weekend of October every year, the nation’s top rodeo riders and the best broncs and bucking bulls gather for the Warwick Rodeo – known far and wide as “Australia’s Most Famous”. The riders and the bucking stock come together to try and prove the old saying wrong – “never the horse that couldn’t be rode, never the rider that couldn’t be throwed”. Warwick Rodeo was immortalized in song by Australian country music legend Buddy Williams in the early 1940s but well before then, Warwick had a tradition of horsemanship and great riders to match the city’s sandstone buildings, fine churches, rose gardens and wide, tree-lined streets. Today, Warwick Rodeo and Gold Cup Campdraft attracts crowds in excess of 30,000 people with competitors and horses travelling from every mainland state to compete.

The Potters' Rodeo Country Craft Market is held on the last Saturday of October and is situated in the beautiful Leslie Park. It showcases the talents of South East Queensland with many hand made items, fine food and Country & Western Music. The Warwick Rodeo Float Parade is a feature of the day with community and businesses joining in 'the fun of a parade' on Palmerin Street.
