The Stampede’s mission, dating back to the late 1800s, is to celebrate our nation’s independence and preserve our western heritage. That mission plays out in PRCA rodeos, country music and classic rock concerts, daily parades, western art show, carnival and food court. Miss Rodeo Colorado receives her crown during a pageant hosted during the Stampede. More than 250,000 local, national and international guests participate in the Greeley Stampede each year.
