About Ponoka Stampede

The Ponoka Stampede is one of the most iconic rodeos in Alberta and has been entertaining audiences for over a century. Founded in 1912, the Ponoka Stampede has become a beloved tradition for many Albertans and visitors alike. Held every year during the second week of July, the four-day event features traditional rodeo events such as bull riding, barrel racing, calf roping, and steer wrestling. The event also includes other activities such as live music, parades, and carnival rides. The Ponoka Stampede takes place at the historic grounds located just outside of town. The grandstands are filled with cheering fans who come to watch some of the best professional cowboys compete for prize money and bragging rights. Over the years, the Stampede has developed rivalries with other rodeos around Alberta including Calgary Stampede, Strathmore Stampede, and Medicine Hat Exhibition & Stampede. The event is currently headed by General Manager & CEO Paul Rosenberg who took over in 2020 after long-time GM Tom Uphill retired after 40 years of service to the organization. The Ponoka Stampede attracts some of the top cowboys on both sides of the border each year who compete for prize money and points towards qualifying for larger events later in the season.

Some notable competitors include world champion bull rider Sage Kimzey; world champion tie-down roper Shane Hanchey; Canadian champion bareback rider Orin Larsen; Canadian champion barrel racer Mary Walker; World Champion Steer Wrestler Tanner Milan; and World Champion Saddle Bronc Rider Zeke Thurston. In addition to its traditional rodeo events, Ponoka also hosts several other activities throughout the week such as concerts featuring some of country music’s biggest stars like Blake Shelton and Jason Aldean. There is also an extensive midway full of carnival rides and games that are sure to entertain all ages. The event also includes a parade through downtown Ponoka where locals get to show off their floats and wave at spectators from all over Alberta who have come out to enjoy this unique experience. As they look ahead to 2023, organizers are already planning an even bigger event than before with more entertainment options than ever before!
