Here’s Everything You Need to Know About The Greeley Stampede 2021

On-site storage, we’ve got you covered

There are a lot of reasons to celebrate the U.S. reopening, and one of them is the return of the Greeley Stampede. The annual event, which was canceled last year due to the pandemic, kicks off on June 24 and ends with fireworks on July 4 at Island Grove Regional Park.

Although celebrating its 99th year, the Greeley Stampede dates back to the late 1800s when the community started it as a way to honor local potato farmers. You could definitely say that the 10-day festival has changed a lot over the decades, and today, more than 250,000 people attend to see rodeos, concerts, art, cars, a parade, carnival rides, and more.

The Schedule of Events

There is plenty to see and do at the Western summer celebration! One of the top attractions, of course, includes the PRCA Rodeo Series, which takes place every day from Friday, June 25 through Wednesday, June 30. You can get a more up-close view of the longhorn steers, however, when they’re walked through the grounds each day. (You can also see them in the Independence Day Parade.)

Nonetheless, concerts are a big draw for the Greeley Stampede as well. This year’s performers include Toby Mac, Lauren Alaina, HARDY, Dwight Yoakam, Dylan Scott, and 3 Doors Down.

The Greeley Independence Day Parade starts at 9 a.m. on July 3. You can watch it all along 10th Avenue – UNC to Downtown Greeley.

And on the last day, July 4, you can catch the Stampede Demolition Derby with more than 100 drivers. It starts at 2 p.m. and if you want to go, get your tickets sooner rather than later. The derby is an annual favorite and consistently sells out every year.

Finally, you can finish off the holiday weekend with the Independence Day Fireworks at 9:45 p.m. at Island Grove Regional Park.

There’s a little something for everyone! You can take a look at the full schedule of events on the festival’s website.

How to Get Tickets For The Greeley Stampede 2021

The easiest way to get tickets to the Greeley Stampede is directly on the Greeley Stampede website. However, you can also call 970-356-7787 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. or visit the Box Office at 600 North 14th Avenue in Greeley.

Tickets for the carnival start at $30 per person, per day. But you can get a “season pass” to get you in every single day to ride rides and eat food for $125.

Separately, individual events like the rodeo start at $5.50, and you’ll need to purchase tickets for the exact day you want to go. For example, if you want to go to the PRCA Rodeo on Tuesday and Thursday, you’ll need to purchase tickets for both of those days (there isn’t one inclusive rodeo pass).

As for concerts, you can purchase the SuperStars Concert Series Package (while supplies last) starting at $95. Individual concerts start at around $35 per ticket.

The Greeley Stampede warns against buying tickets from third-party sellers, as they may be invalid or overpriced. (The Greeley Stampede does not accept print-at-home scan tickets, FYI.)

Keep in mind, parking will cost $15 day-of, or $10 in advance when purchased online. A portion of all parking profits will be donated to community organizations and non-profits.

There Are a Few COVID-19 Changes

“The Greeley Stampede continues to work with State and local government to stay up to date on safe event guidelines and practices,” the website says. For example, the festival will be limiting arena capacity, but plans to open more seats in phases as advised by the guidelines. Events will also be more spread out around the park to promote social distancing, there will be additional cleanings scheduled in high-traffic areas, and there will be hand sanitizing stations throughout the park.

Masks will not be required at The Greeley Stampede, but are recommended for arena events or any populated areas in the park.

If you’re not vaccinated but plan to be, starting Monday, June 14, Banner Health is offering the Pfizer vaccine at a few different locations in the area, including a drive-up clinic. In return, the health organization will provide patients with a voucher for two free rodeo tickets. It will also offer the vaccine during the Stampede at the Buckle Club on June 26, June 28, July 1, and July 3. (Banner Health is an official sponsor of the Greeley Stampede.)
