This year Rupert City welcomes The 2nd Annual “Beet Drop”, presented in part by Gem State Entertainment, Landview, AgriTerre Seed, ACH Seeds, Valley Wide Cooperative, Valley Agronomics, WillTran, CMI Machine, City Of Rupert, The Historic Wilson Theatre, K&R Rental, and Barclay Mechanical.

“The Beet Drop” is being coined as “the safest event in the world” of its kind. Due to current affairs a multitude of extra precautionary measures have been taken above and beyond the necessary and mandatory regulations required for putting on an event like this. Sponsors, patrons and presenters are encouraging all attendees to dress warm, maintain physical distancing, and wear a mask.

The Rupert City Police department has extended the footprint of this years Beet Drop to include the entire town square and blocking off Fremont Street to maintain flow, providing maximum security and ample room for all those attending.

We are proud to be one of the only city’s in the world producing a family fun event of this kind and bringing in 2021 together. We trust everyone will be as safe as possible and considerate to all those who are attending and producing the event.

Jonathan McEuen & Raanen Bozzio will be headlining (both sons of Musical Royalty from Nitty Gritty to Zappa & beyond) along with guitar virtuoso Terrence Hansen, Songstress Michelle Moonshine, & our very own Barton & Bollar, making for an all star line up this year. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. and ends at 12:00 Midnight after the fireworks and The Beet Drops.

Let’s bring in the New Year together with the best of our collective communities luck and love, with a huge Thank You to The City Of Rupert and all of this years sponsors.


Ryan McEuen, Rupert
