Silver State Stampede – Elko

July 8 - July 10

The Silver State Stampede is the oldest rodeo in Nevada. The tradition of Elko’s 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’s Stampede has grown into a multi-faceted event, showcasing the best of rodeo and ranch cowboys alike. 

On Friday & Saturday gates open at 4 PM and the action starts at 6 PM with the Mutton Busting. The traditional tri-tip dinner will be held on Friday.
​On Sunday gates open at 4 PM and the action starts at 5 PM.
Old West Bronc Riding during each performance. 

There will also be a mini bull riding, Roughstock 101 ages 8nit-10 division and 11-13.
