Don’t miss your chance to take part in the stampede that’s the most fun on the rodeo circuit. Watch locals and pros compete alongside each other in popular events such as wild cow milking, the cowhide race and the infamous “wild” horse race. No matter where you are in the stands, you can be sure not to miss out on a thing with instant replays and live video coverage on a 10’ x 14’ videoboard.

The Teepee Creek Stampede welcomes all riders from amateurs to pros, local to international. Kids can even get in on the action with a miniature version of the TP Wild Horse Race that teams of 3, ages 10-12, can enter. This makes the Teepee Creek Stampede extra special because it gives locals a chance to participate. Adding to the community feel of this event is the fact that all proceeds go toward projects within the Teepee Creek community and the Huntington Society of Canada.

Always a crowd favourite, the Teepee Creek Terror is back again this year. The lucky rider in this event is drawn from a hat. Once the challenge is accepted this cowboy then gets to ride the most wild, unruly horse in the pen. Should he stay on for 10 minutes, he’ll go home with a little extra money in his pocket. The rules for this event always have a bit of a twist depending on the daily judges, so it is never the same twice and always entertaining to see!

The stampede kicks off Thursday, July 10, with Family Day and a Junior Rodeo beginning at 9 am. It continues through to July 13, with festivities starting at 8 am and all the main rodeo performances taking place at 1 pm. You’ll want to make sure you’re in the stands for 6:30 pm sharp because that’s when the WCA Thoroughbred and All Pro Pony wagon races square off. We recommend that you also hang around for Sunday’s Dash for Cash races.

The Teepee Creek Stampede isn’t just known for its rodeo events. After all, what is a rodeo without a good old-fashioned rodeo dance and cowboy cabaret? When the sun goes down the real party starts and the live musical entertainment begins. This year you’ll be able to spend your Friday night dancing with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Saturday night will have you “fallin’ over” Chad Brownlee as he performs at the Enframe TP Barn.

With free camping and activities for all ages, this event is fun for the whole family. For a schedule of events and ticket information please visit: www.tpstampede.ca.
