The Bozeman Stampede, July 31 – Aug 1
The great American sport of rodeo comes to the Gallatin County Fairgrounds July 31 - Aug. 1. The Bozeman Stampede (voted the NRA Rodeo of the Year in 2010) is a National Rodeo Association sanctioned rodeo with traditional events like bull riding, steer wrestling, calf roping, barrel racing, team roping, bareback and saddle bronc riding, ladies breakaway and junior events.
Also back this year is the popular bull scramble where participants actually face a live bull for a chance to win a cash prize. It's not enough, if you ask me. Check out the video of the bull scramble below:
The Bozeman Stampede is a non-profit rodeo that was started in 2010 by a handful of Bozemanites with the intension of bringing back a sanctioned rodeo to Bozeman for the first time in over 50 years. Their goals are to provide a fun community event that would benefit Bozeman business and community both culturally and economically and raise money for quality local ag groups. The rodeo is a sanctioned under the Northern Rodeo Association.
