Crazy Horse Stampede Rodeo
The annual Crazy Horse Stampede Rodeo is held June 17 - 19 at the Crazy Horse Memorial outdoor arena. The Stampede is one of the few rodeos to offer events sponsored by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), Women's Professional Rodeo Association and the Great Plains Indian Rodeo Association (GPIRA) events. Crazy Horse Memorial supports the Crazy Horse Stampede to further the Memorial's goals of cultural understanding.
The GPIRA rodeo is held on Friday to open the three-day event. The PRCA- and WPRA-sanctioned events are held Saturday and Sunday. “Slack” events are held Friday (time TBA) and Saturday after the 2 p.m. performance. The Stampede is a one go-round rodeo.
The Stampede is produced by Korkow Rodeos, a national award-winning outfit based in South Dakota. Even if you have never seen a bull buck, the animated rodeo clowns, energized announcers and talented contestants will sweep you up in the excitement of thrilling Crazy Horse Stampede arena action.
