THE GREELEY STAMPEDE IS POSTPONED UNTIL 2021, BUT THE TRADITIONS CONTINUE
Even though this year's Greeley Stampede is postponed to 2021 and the summer events have been cancelled, we are working on continuing two community traditions - fireworks & rodeo.
One of the missions is to celebrate our independence. There is no better way to do this than the annual fireworks show. The Greeley Stampede will partner with local businesses to continue to provide our community with Northern Colorado's largest display on Saturday, July 4, 2020. Now more than ever, the community needs this family tradition and opportunity to celebrate our independence and life. For this occasion, we have set a goal to increase the investment in fireworks for a larger, more patriotic fireworks display.
Rodeo and the western lifestyle has been the backbone of our event since the first Spud Rodeo in 1922. In partnership with the PRCA to continue the Greeley rodeo tradition, the Greeley Stampede is planning to produce three (3) virtual Spud Rodeo performances in September 2020 to celebrate our roots and the sport. Due to projected COVID-19 limitation on gathering sizes, these virtual rodeos will be nationally broadcast through the Cowboy Channel network. We had hopes of continuing the July rodeo tradition, but now feel that September may provide a better opportunity to include more community involvement.
We invite you to be a part of these two historic events to help continue our important family traditions.
