A summer full of rodeos, stampedes, barrel races and more!
July is in full swing, and along with the heat come some of our favorite events and festivals! Tough Enough to Wear Pink, our nonprofit partner, is fundraising at a slew of rodeos and races this summer – so mark your calendar if they’ll be in your area. Below are some we thought you would enjoy hearing more about:
This year the Calgary Stampede celebrates its 100th anniversary with a 10-day stampede starting tomorrow, July 6, in Alberta, Canada. Take these tips from a veteran stampede volunteer to get the most out of this year’s event.
Also celebrating a 100-year anniversary, the California Rodeo Salinas runs from Thursday, July 19 through Sunday, July 22nd. Known as “Big Week,” this event was once called the Wild West Show and is richly steeped in history. A whopping 50,000 are expected at this year’s event to watch the country’s top professional rodeo athletes compete!
Barrel racing and barrel horse fans come on out and support Tough Enough To Wear Pink at the Dupont Barrel Race for Charity in Aurora, Oregon on July 21. All proceeds from this event will benefit breast cancer research.
The great American West lives on in Ogden Pioneer Stadium at Ogden Pioneer Days during the week of July 24th! Grab your friends and family and set out for Ogden, Utah, for a week of concerts, fireworks, rodeo events, and more – including a rodeo that is the two-time winner of the “Best Rodeo in the Wilderness Circuit.” The night of July 23rd is dedicated to Tough Enough to Wear Pink, so don’t forget to don your pink!
On July 28th catch Tough Enough at the Sheridan County Fair & PRCA Rodeo in Plentywood, Montana. This event features a rodeo and wild horse race, concerts, a demolition derby, games, food and more. It’s a great way to enjoy some the hottest days of the year, and help a great cause.
Can’t make it out to an event? You can still help out! For every purchase of Purple Cowboy Wines a contribution is made to support the Tough Enough to Wear Pink breast cancer campaign. And remember to enter for a chance to win two tickets to the Wrangler National Finals in Las Vegas, read all the details here.
