Nevada’s Silver State Stampede

 

July 2013 issue  

 

Nevada's Silver State Stampede

 

     The 101st Annual Silver State Stampede will be held at the Elko County Fairgrounds in Elko , Nevada , July 11-13, 2013. The rodeo began in 1912 when GS Garcia — the world-famous bit, spur and saddle maker — decided that northern Nevada cowboys needed their own rodeo. The event will showcase the best of rodeo and ranch cowboys.

     This year, enjoy an evening concert with John Michael Montgomery on Thursday, July 11, at 6:30 p.m.

     The Kick-Off party begins at 6:00 p.m. on Friday with tri-tip dinner, open bar, Old West Bronc Riding and Calcutta , and a western dance with the Jeff Palmer Band.

     Old West Bronc Riding is a competition held in the tradition of old-time buckaroos who ride broncs using their own stock saddles and everyday tack. The event simulates actual working conditions of authentic modern-day cowboys, and is open to amateurs and professionals.

     Friday and Saturday will feature a PRCA rodeo with traditional roping and riding events, as well as the “Ring of Fear.” This exciting and unpredictable contest pits five amateur “bullfighters” against one bull from the PRCA bucking string. Each person must remain in their designated circle as the bull charges, with contestants eliminated if they leave their circle to avoid the bull — a half-ton of athletic, angry hooves and horns. The last man standing (or lying) in his circle wins $500.

     The Stampede offers spectators high-quality food and beverages, including a fully-stocked Cowboy Bar and a trade show with Western vendors. Everyone is encouraged to wear pink on Saturday night to support the “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” fundraiser.

            For a schedule of events and more information on the Silver State Stampede, including rodeo tickets, call 775-778-5323 or 775-397-2275 or visit  www.silverstatestampede.com
