The Wildest, Fastest Show on Earth Will Take Place This July, With One Noticeable Difference
NAMPA, Idaho - The Snake River Stampede Board of Directors is excited to announce that the rodeo is back! After thorough discussion and consideration, the Snake River Stampede rodeo will take place as it had for more than a century. While patrons can expect a magnificent show, the parade has been canceled. With a growing community and the inability to ensure social distancing, it has been decided that the parade will be reconsidered next year.
“It was a tough decision last year to cancel the rodeo, and another tough decision to cancel the parade this year, but we have no option. Today we are excited to announce that the rodeo will be taking place because the show must go on! Our board of directors takes the safety of our contestants, fans, and volunteers very seriously and we will practice safety and follow distancing guidelines as well as continue to monitor any potential threat, but we know at this time that we can have a safe yet exciting rodeo in Nampa once again,” said Roger Todd, President.
The Snake River Stampede in Nampa started in 1915 and has grown to become one of the top 10 regular season professional rodeos in the nation out of the approximately 600 rodeos in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association.
