In case you haven’t heard, the 17th Annual Valley Center Stampede Rodeo is hosting the first-ever professional rodeo in Valley Center this Memorial Day weekend. This year’s rodeo, now sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA), will offer a full-lineup of professional rodeo performances on May 25 & 26, 2018.
Additionally, please note that the Valley Center Stampede Rodeo is moving to Valley Center’s newest park, Star Valley Park, located at 29902 Valley Center Road, Valley Center, CA.
As we’ve noted above, there are a couple of important changes to the Stampede Rodeo, but what will notbe changing is the fun, family-friendly, quality rodeo entertainment that you’ve come to expect each year, which commemorates Memorial Day by honoring our nation’s Veterans throughout each performance. That tradition continues!
