“Biggest Little Rodeo in California” – 29th Annual PRCA Stampede Days Rodeo in Bakersfield
The Kern County Sheriff Reserve Stampede Days Rodeo is coming to the Kern County Fairgrounds in Bakersfield, CA this weekend - May 2 & 3, 2014 . A PRCA California Circuit Rodeo, the Stampede Days Rodeo offers one of the largest purses of any other comparably sized rodeo in the state. That, coupled with the outstanding and high level of contestants competing in the Stampede Days Rodeo, it is often referred to as “The Biggest Little Rodeo in California”. PRCA Cowboys and WPRA Cowgirls are rolling in and are ready to rodeo!
Lots of fun and excitement in store this weekend!! Not only will the new Miss Stampede Days Rodeo Queen be announced, but Miss Rodeo California 2014, Ondrea Edwards, ( website / Facebook ) will be present at the rodeo performances!
PRCA Rodeo Announcer Doc Boene will make his 5th appearance at the Stampede Days Rodeo. His extensive ranching history and his working knowledge of the "Cowboy Way", along with his own kind of "magic and humor", enables Doc to make that that personal connection with both the contestants and rodeo fans.
Rodeo Secretary Sherry Rice-Gibson will ensure all runs smooth in the rodeo office! Rodeo Timers, Mary Borgen and Charlotte Holmes will be on hand for all of the timed events. Bullfighters Aaron Hargo and Donny Castle, along with Barrelman Dwayne Hargo and Pick-Up Man Jake Twisselman, will be in the arena to keep our cowboys and animal athletes safe.
PRCA Photographer Gene Hyder ( website / Facebook ) will capture all of the memories made in the arena at the 29th PRCA Stampede Days Rodeo. Big Stone Rodeo Company, Moreno & Growney, Growney Brothers Rodeo Company (website / Facebook ) will be the stock contractors providing the animal athletes.
Wishing lots of luck and safe travels to all of the contestants!
