Event History
The Greeley Stampede is a non-profit 501c4 organization that is rich in tradition and heritage dating back to the late 1800's. It began as a community celebration to honor local potato farmers and has since grown into an internationally acclaimed festival attracting over 220,000 people annually from all parts of the United States and many foreign countries. Today, the event is Colorado’s premier summer western celebration that strives to celebrate our western heritage & independence while making a positive impact on our community.

Giving Back to the Community
The Stampede has been and will always be about the community. Over the past 5 years, the event has:
- donated more than $375k to community organizations that volunteer during the event
- raised more than $315k for the Stampede Foundation to support education in Northern Colorado
- invested more than $1.5 million for Island Grove Park improvements

The Legacy Project
In 2022, the Greeley Stampede will be celebrating the 100th annual community celebration. It will be a major milestone for the event, community and the entire State of Colorado. A top priority is to preserve and showcase the Stampede’s history for future generations to experience. The Greeley Stampede is exploring to expand the current office in Island Grove Park to fulfill this priority called the Legacy Project.

The Legacy Project is a 2,300 sq ft expansion with space to:
- display event memorabilia including saddles, buckles, programs and event photos
- store and preserve event archives
- recognize distinguished individuals like former Grand Marshals & Hall of Fame inductees
- showcase the Stampede’s permanent western art collection
- host volunteer meetings & special events
- renovate existing offices to accommodate for the new project and to create more efficient
office space
- feature a commisioned art mural dedicated to the history of agriculture in Greeley for their role in our community’s success
- share the history of the sport of rodeo
