2015 Minnesota Bus Roadeo

St. Cloud, MN

St. Cloud Metro Bus is excited to host the 28th Annual Minnesota State Bus Roadeo. The 2015 MN Statewide Bus Roadeo Committee is busy planning this year's event.

The roadeo provides an opportunity for drivers to be recognized for the jobs they do every day, while gaining new insights through challenging competition. Participants will have the opportunity to network with other drivers and managers from throughout the state and learn from their experiences. The competition will be from the best drivers in the state all vying for top honors.

St. Cloud and the Central Lakes is one of the fastest growing areas in Minnesota and you can't believe what we have in store for you! World-class gardens, the Mighty Mississippi, fabulous festivals, scenic lakes, and a booming economy--it just doesn't get much better than this. St. Cloud, a thriving Mississippi River city blessed year-round with a wide range of cultural, social, and recreational activities. Historic theaters, renowned international gardens and regional shopping are just a sample of what awaits you. 

Learn about our history and the history of the granite industry at the Stearns History Museum. It’s Minnesota's only nationally accredited history museum outside the metro area and contains the Pan automobile that was manufactured in St. Cloud in 1919!

Stroll through the fabulous Munsinger Gardens with the distinctive giant oak, hemlock and pine trees and the adjacent Clemens Gardens featuring a series of European gardens including the Virginia Clemens Rose Garden with over 1000 rose bushes. Attend a production at the beautifully renovated Paramount Theater or the Pioneer Place on Fifth. You’ll love the music, dance, drama, laughter - something for everyone! 

Enjoy biking, hiking, and walking on the many trails around the St. Cloud area including the Beaver Island Trail, the Lake Wobegon Regional Trail or Quarry Park. Quarry Park gives you a glimpse into the industry that gave St. Cloud the nickname of Nitty Gritty Granite City at the turn of the century. Bigger than you think – Quarry Park was created at the site of 25 abandoned granite quarries. Explore and you’ll find a swimming area, hiking/nature trails, mountain bike routes, four miles of groomed lighted cross country ski trails, scuba diving, and rainbow trout and bass fishing.
