Watada: A little something for everyone awaits at the Stampede


On behalf of all of the Greeley Stampede volunteers and staff, we invite you to be a part of the 95th Annual Greeley Stampede and experience Colorado’s premiere summer western celebration. The 12-day community event is expected to draw more than 200,000 guests from around the world.

Only a few more days until Island Grove Park is filled with music, rodeo, parades, festival food, carnival and shopping for all to enjoy.

We have hundreds of activities and attractions to experience including an award-winning rodeo, the Superstars Concert Series, Colorado’s largest demolition derby and a large carnival midway. Event guests can also enjoy the nationally acclaimed Stampede Western Art Show, Centennial Village, indoor shopping, Sheep Stampede, daily parades, fireworks shows and the Banner Health Free Stage.

New events and attractions include the Page’s White Tiger Show and Aussie Kingdom Exhibit in the Kids Korral, Rodeo Behind the Chutes Tour, a Scavenger Hunt and the Fiesta de Música featuring Luis Coronel.

I also would like to thank all the great volunteers who spend countless hours all year planning the biggest party of the summer. They are truly the backbone of the event and are the reason the event is successful.

This year’s Greeley Stampede has too much going on to list here, so please go to http://www.greeleystampede.org and follow us on social media to learn more about all of the great events and attractions.

Tickets are selling fast, so I encourage you to act soon. We look forward to making this event a lasting memory for all who attend.

— Justin Watada is the general manager for the Greeley Stampede.
