Stockyards Stampede in Historic Stockyards City
On October 16, if you feel the ground shake and hear a rumbling sound, don’t panic …
it’s not an earthquake. It is just a good old-fashioned stampede through the streets of the
oldest district in Oklahoma … Stockyards City!
The Chain Ranch Longhorns will kick off the event at 10 a.m. by parading down the street. They will begin at the Oklahoma National Stockyards archway on Exchange. They will be on display throughout the event. The longhorns will parade down Exchange again at 2:30 p.m. as they return to the Stockyards.
A chuck wagon camp will be set up where you can view demonstrations of traditional cooking. At noon, samplings of cobbler, stew, cornbread and more will be on hand.
The Rodeo Opry stage will feature live music, a square dance demonstration by the Central District Square Dance Association, and, of course, the Little Ms. and Mr. Stockyards City pageant!
A Made in Oklahoma Market will be by Little Joe's Boots on Exchange. The market will include locally made and produced items. A leather working demonstration will be held at the market.
The Kids Corral will have many fun activities for kids of all ages! Come get your picture made with some adorable alpacas and a llama.
This will be a perfect opportunity to experience all that is Stockyards City! Visit the restaurants, shops, and get pictures of the things you can only see in Stockyards!
A visit to the Rattlesnake Museum and the Horseshoeing Museum are a must. Rodeo Cinema will be airing a free movie for kids and offering free popcorn!
The entire event is family friendly. Join us on Saturday, October 16, for this year's Stockyards Stampede.
