It’s colorful, it’s known as one of the top 10 rodeos in the world, and it’s famous for Chuckwagon racing; it’s the Ponoka Stampede! The rodeo, taking place June 25th-July 1st, 2019, is the largest Canadian Professional Cowboy Association Approved Rodeo, and attracts the top competitors in both Canada and North America each year. Learn all about the rodeo, entertainment, and events you can’t miss, below!
It’s already been mentioned that the Ponoka Stampede attracts some of the biggest names in the rodeo industry! Richmond Champion, Stevi Hillman, Joe Frost, and Sterling Crawley are just a handful of Ponoka Stampede winners from 2018 who will likely be back again to defend their titles in 2019. The rodeo will feature Dr. Lynn Phillips, Les McIntyre, Katy Lucas, and Gary J Gross as announcers, and Niki Flundra, Specialty Act of The Year in Canadian Professional Rodeo 8x, as the rodeo act.

Fans who travel to Ponoka for the rodeo most likely have watching Chuckwagon racing at the top of their to-do list, which is why the rodeo has two performances of racing on six straight nights. The first performance each night will be the All-Pro Canadian Chuckwagons. The second performance will be the “Top Wagon Drivers in the World” of the World Professional Chuckwagon Association.
Most rodeo fans love a good concert, and this year Ponoka Stampede attendees will have the chance to watch three! Check out the music lineup below and click the following links to purchase tickets.
