The 86th Annual Williams Lake Stampede runs from June 30 through July 2, 2012 at the Williams Lake Stampede Grounds. This longstanding rodeo event is a treasure of the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast region of British Columbia. Cowboys and rodeo competitors from Canada and the U.S. come together for a long Canada Day weekend of bareback riding, barrel racing, bull riding, steer wrestling, team roping, tie-down roping and much more.
In addition to the rodeo action, the Williams Lake Stampede features a parade and a variety of vendors and entertainment, making this event fun for the whole family.
The Cariboo area is well known as British Columbia’s Cowboy Country and this summertime event celebrates that history and the thriving cowboy culture of today. (more…)
