The Greeley Stampede Still Has Plans for Rodeo Events and Fireworks in 2020

They often say that something is better than nothing, and that could not be more true in regards to the Greeley Stampede in 2020. Of course, the actual event was postponed until 2021 earlier this week, but today the Stampede announced they'll still be giving us a small sample of what we would have had this June and July.

In a press release they said in part;

Even though this year’s Greeley Stampede is postponed to 2021 and the summer events have been cancelled, we are working on continuing two community traditions—fireworks & rodeo.
One of the missions of the Greeley Stampede is to celebrate our independence. There is no better way to do this as a community then the annual fireworks show. The Greeley Stampede will partner with local businesses to continue to provide our community with Northern Colorado’s largest display on Saturday, July 4, 2020. Now more than ever, the community needs this family tradition and opportunity to celebrate our independence and life. For this occasion, we have set a goal to increase the investment in fireworks for a larger, more patriotic fireworks display.
Rodeo and the western lifestyle has been the backbone of our event since the first Spud Rodeo in 1922. In partnership with the PRCA to continue the Greeley rodeo tradition, the Greeley Stampede is planning to produce three (3) virtual Spud Rodeo performances in September 2020 to celebrate our roots and the sport. Due to projected COVID-19 limitations on gathering sizes, these virtual rodeos will be broadcasted nationally through the Cowboy Channel network. We had hopes of continuing the July rodeo tradition, but now feel that September may provide a better opportunity to include more community involvement. A portion of the Spud Rodeo series proceeds will be donated to the Weld Recovers Fund COVID-19 relief benefiting the United Way of Weld County and Weld Community Foundation. We will provide more information on the Spud Rodeos when available.
If you are interested in the Spud Rodeo and/or fireworks sponsorship opportunities or to donate in support of the 501c4 Greeley Stampede organization, please contact Justin Watada at
