A Ponoka Stampede fan favourite, Stampede Showdown fills the stands

There is a reason the Ponoka Stampede is cited as one of the top rodeos in North America.

After a week of grueling competition, the top riders of the week will face off for one final time against some of the best stock professional rodeo has to offer in the Stampede Showdown.

The top four cowboys or cowgirls from each event advance from the finals to compete for a total of $105,000 bonus prize money.

Bareback, saddle bronc, bull riding, tie-down roping, steer wrestling, barrel racing, team roping competitors will perform one final time on Sunday, July 2, after the pro rodeo finals finish. This event is always known to fill the stands.

The Showdown is the climax of rodeo action in an event that has put Ponoka on the map.

Grab your tickets while you can.
