Cody is Rodeo

old photo of saddle bronc ridingCody is the “Rodeo Capitol of the World.” From the turn of the century, rodeos and parades have been part of the Fourth of July here in Cody, Wyoming. Starting officially in 1919, the Cody Stampede rodeo has been held every summer. Cody has not only one of the longest running successful professional rodeos, but also the only place in the country that has a rodeo performance nightly. The Professional Rodeo Cowboy’s Association named the Cody Stampede “Best Large Outdoor Rodeo of the Year” in 1998 and 1999. In 2001 the Cody Nite Rodeo was nominated for “Best Small Outdoor Rodeo of the Year.”

With our two distinct rodeos, the Cody Nite Rodeo every night from June through August, and the Cody Stampede July 1st through July 4th, we continue to make our mark in the rodeo world.
