Event Details

The Silver State Stampede is the oldest rodeo in Nevada. The tradition of this annual rodeo started in 1913 when GS Garcia, the world-famous bit, spur, and saddle maker, decided that northern Nevada cowboys needed a rodeo, and the town needed the added entertainment and income. Today, the Stampede is extremely unique in that it is the only professional rodeo to offer Garcia spurs to event winners. The Silver State Stampede is held annually in mid-July and features real working cowboys from Nevada and the surrounding states.

The Stampede includes PRCA sanctioned roping and riding events, as well as the popular Old West Bronc Riding Championship, held in the tradition of old-time buckaroos. This event is open to amateur and professional contestants alike. Entrants ride in the stock saddles they work in every day, to simulate actual working conditions of authentic modern-day cowboys and buckaroos.
