Boasting a $400,000 payoff, the Snake River Stampede is one of the top 10 regular season professional rodeos in the nation. The stampede, held July 14-18, has evolved from a small, local bucking horse competition in the early 1900s to a major professional sports event. Virtually all of the world champions have competed at the Stampede at one time or another. The rodeo features the famous Snake River Stampeders Night Light Drill Team. Attendance is approximately 60,000 for the five-day, six-performance event.
