Hall of Fame

Over the past 100 years, there have been many people that have made a valuable contribution to the success of the Greeley Stampede. Simply the act of so many people giving their time and resources has made the event what it is today. The Greeley Stampede Hall of Fame is established for the purpose of honoring individuals who have made significant and long-lasting contributions to the Greeley Stampede.

Inductees into the Hall of Fame may include, but not be limited to, volunteers, affiliated organizations, contract personnel, and others who have made a significant contribution to the success and prestige of the Greeley Stampede.

2019 Inductees

Bennie Beutler, Bill May, and Bill Webster

This year’s inductees include Bennie Beutler, the Stampede’s rodeo stock contractor for the past 30+ years, Bill May, a longtime Wrangler volunteer member and two-term Committeeman, and Bill Webster, who served on the Committee for 10 years and has been an Old Bucker for more than 50 years.

“It was great to review so many nomination forms and learn more about the history of the event. After a lot of discussion, the review Committee felt these three would be the perfect class for this year’s Hall of Fame,” said Justin Watada, General Manager and Hall of Fame Chairman. “They all had a huge impact on the event and have been instrumental in putting Greeley on the map as one of the top rodeos in the country.”

To recognize the Hall of Fame inductees, the Greeley Stampede will be hosting a banquet Friday, April 26 at Zoe’s Café starting at 6pm. Individual tickets will be $25 or a table of eight for $160. Tickets for the banquet will be available at the Greeley Stampede ticket office located at 600 N 14th Ave. Tickets can also be purchased over the phone at 970-356-7787. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 10am-4pm.

Additional recognition will take place during the 2019 Greeley Stampede including display cases for each inductee with information and artifacts about their contributions to the Stampede. The display cases will be located in the Events Center during the Event.
