"The Greeley Stampede"
Greeley is known for its yearly Greeley Stampede to celebrate our nation's independence and preserve our western heritage. Rich in tradition and heritage dating back to the late 1800's. This tradition was started to honor the local potato farmers and today has grown into an international festival attracting over 250,000 people annually from both the US and internationally. The Annual Stampede Western Art Show showcases western paintings, photographs and sculptures. You can browse the range of art as well as meet and greet the artist during the Annual Stampede. Of course, don't forget to visit the Greeley Rodeo Show. During this time, the hotels are all sold out so be sure to book early.
