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.
To recognize the Hall of Fame inductees, the Greeley Stampede will be hosting a banquet Friday, May 1 at Zoe's Cafe starting at 6pm. Individual tickets for the event are $25 or a table of eight for $160. Tickets for the banquet are available at the Greeley Stampede ticket office located at 600 N. 14th Avenue. Tickets can also be purchased over the phone at 970-356-7787. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 10am-4pm. Space for the banquet is limited.
