Rodeos in Utah

Ute Stampede Rodeo

The Ute Stampede Rodeo is a PRCA-sanctioned Rodeo that is traditionally held the second week of July in Nephi, Utah. It’s a perfect time for a celebration, before the grain harvest, and hauling in the meadow hay. The cattle are on the mountain, and the first crop of hay is up.

From humble beginnings in 1934, the Ute Stampede has grown into one of Utah’s largest celebrations. The people of East Juab County salute our friends and neighbors for helping us grow. And welcome you back for another first class Rodeo featuring the Flying U Rodeo Company headed by Cotton Rosser, for 58 years Rodeo’s most Colorful Producer. Great horses and bulls. Bullfighters, Louie Jones and Aaron Hargo.

In addition to the main event, there is plenty to do for the whole family. Come for the rodeo but stay for the Craft Show, Trap Shooting, Fun Run, Horseshoe Tournament, Car Show, and don’t forget the Lion’s Club Chuckwagon Breakfast.

The grandstand on the west side of the arena was rebuilt in 2009, complete with a concession stand and new restrooms. The new seats are wheelchair accessible with companion seats located next to the wheelchair spots.
