The Silver State Stampede is the oldest rodeo in Nevada. The tradition
of Elko’s annual rodeo started in 1913 when GS Garcia, the world-famous bit,
spur, and saddle maker, decided that northern Nevada cowboys needed a rodeo,
and the town needed the added entertainment and income.
Today’s Stampede has grown into a multi-faceted event, showcasing the best of
rodeo and ranch cowboys alike. The Stampede won the award for 2006 Best Small
Rodeo in the Wilderness Circuit. We have won it four out of five years--in 2003,
2005, 2006, and 2007.
stock contractor is the Bar T Rodeo Company of Chester, Utah,
which is owned and operated by the Kerby family. With 50 years of experience
producing professional rodeos, Bar T brings to Elko some of the best stock in
the industry. Members of the Cowboy Rodeo Hall of Fame, Kerbys have sent stock
to the National Finals Rodeo every year since 1959. They won the PRCA Best Remuda
Award in 2006 and in 2011 for their great bucking stock.
The Stampede is extremely unique in that
it is the only professional rodeo to offer Garcia spurs to event winners.
Event purses for the rodeo totaled
over $20,000, with $3,000 designated for each event.
