Snake River Stampede

Wednesday, July 15-Saturday, July 18

Dust off your western wear and find that George Strait cassette tape: It's rodeo time. The Snake River Stampede is the time when rodeo goers can whoop, holler and stomp their cowboy boots as they watch barrel racing, bull riding and roping.

Celebrating its 100th anniversary, the Stampede draws 60,000 attendees over the course of the five-day event. Boasting a $400,000 purse, this quintessential western event offers more to competitors and attendees than it did a century ago, when it began with a couple of cowboys riding broncos in a dirt lot.

Round up you friends and family and take advantage of the one time a year it's OK to wear that oversized cowboy hat taking up space in the closet.
