High Desert Stampede 2021

It’s rodeo time in Redmond, Oregon! That’s right folks, the city of Redmond, Oregon is keeping the rodeo legacy alive and “Bringing you the Stars” with the High Desert Stampede Rodeo, March 25-27, 2021.

The origin-story of each rodeo is as unique as the rodeo committee members who come together to make it a reality each year. With many rodeos having been established decades ago, there is a great deal of history to be upheld and appreciated. However, the High Desert Stampede is proving that you don’t need years of history behind you to create a top-notch rodeo tradition. The High Desert Stampede is establishing its history now.


In 2014, a small group of rodeo producers came together with a common goal, bring the best-of-the-best rodeo athletes to Redmond, Oregon for two days of jaw-dropping rodeo activity. Countless hours of planning, volunteerism, and community partnership came together to make this common goal a reality. In 2015, the first High Desert Stampede was up and running. In 2017, The High Desert Stampede was officially sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). Even in the few years since its commencement, The High Desert Stampede has become a staple in the community of Central Oregon. Highly anticipated, the 2021 High Desert Stampede is just around the corner at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds in Redmond, Oregon.

High Desert Stampede Rodeo

Rodeo action is sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seat. With PRCA events such as bull riding, saddle bronc, bareback, team roping, barrel racing, steer wrestling, and tie-down roping, rodeo fans will be able to watch their favorite animal and human athletes alike go head-to-head in the competition. Along with the excitement is the return of Women’s Breakaway Roping to this year’s rodeo event lineup.

Without the generosity of sponsors, volunteers, and community support, no rodeo would be possible. The High Desert Stampede would like to thank its various partners and the public by inviting you to the 2021 Kickoff Party on Thursday, March 24th from 5pm-10pm at the Deschutes County Fair and Expo Center First Interstate Bank Center in the High Desert VIP Room.

Since 2015, the High Desert Stampede has been establishing a family-friendly tradition that celebrates the importance of Central Oregon’s western heritage. High Desert Stampede Rodeo Chairman, Denis Fast is proud to share,

“For any rodeo to be successful it takes the support of the community, we at HDS are blessed to be in Central Oregon. We have enjoyed the support of sponsors, fairgrounds, media, volunteers, local government, advertisers, fans, and the list could go on. Without this support, it would be impossible to be where we are and to get to where we want to be” (
