A Message From Our Chariman

The High Desert Stampede is hard at work getting ready for the rodeo, but we are also working to build the tradition of the High Desert Stampede. All of the pro rodeos in the northwest, in fact all over the country, have tradition going back decades and generations. We at HDS are quite young by comparison!

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.

It is the vision of HDS to build on to this spring break week to include many more activities surrounding the rodeo, making "Western Heritage Week" in Central Oregon. We live in a great and exciting community, we hope to build on what Central Oregon has to offer.

High Desert Stampede sincerely appreciates everyone who has supported us and welcome new interested entities in building the tradition.
