Supporting our western roots.
81 years ago, Ponoka started celebrating the wild and wonderful western affair of rodeo. Today, the community takes pride in the rodeo and commemorates this annual event through wild west entertainment.
Bringing excitement throughout Strathmore for 51 years, the Strathmore Stampede has become a tried and true tradition in the town. This small-town event has grown to attract cowboys and cowgirls from across Alberta coming together to share their love for rodeo.
In its 100 years of wild west entertainment, the High River Pro Rodeo, also known as Guy Weadick Days, brings us back to our rodeo roots to wrangle in a weekend of fun. The annual rodeo is named after the famous chuckwagon legend and resident of High River, Guy Weadick, who inspires us each year to kick up our boots for the return of pro rodeo like we’ve never seen it before.
What started out as an equestrian event 50 years ago has now continued to grow, embedding the community with rodeo. From this love for rodeo, members of the community are reminded of their western roots while partaking in the celebration.
More than 101 years ago, Handhills Lake Stampede had its very first show. What started as a one-time event to raise money for the Red Cross has now become an integral part of the town. 101 years later, the legacy continues and has become an heirloom to be shared by generations of the Handhills community.
