Contestants

Welcome

On behalf of the Elizabeth Stampede Rodeo, the Board of Directors, and the over 200 volunteers who produce this rodeo, we’d like to welcome you to the Elizabeth Stampede Rodeo. 

For the past year, we have been planning a great rodeo that we hope you won’t forget! From welcoming faces at the entrance gate to our cooks serving hot and hearty meals at the Hospitality Tent, all of us want you to feel like the honored guests that you are. If there is something you need or some way that we can help you out, please feel free to ask any volunteer who will be happy to assist you or find someone who can. 

We will keep this page updated and it will be our primary source of last-minute information so please check it before you come. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
