Enjoy 63rd annual Elgin Stampede
Another Northeast Oregon summer tradition takes place this week with the 63rd annual edition of the Elgin Stampede. The popular event kicks off tonight with Family Night and runs daily through Sunday, culminating with the final rodeo performance and the always popular Stampede Challenge event.
The Stampede has forged its own tradition in Northeast Oregon, right along with the Eastern Oregon Livestock Show and Chief Joseph Days. The all-volunteer Elgin Stampeders group just keeps making the show better every year. They do this by putting on successful fundraisers, enhancing the grounds and tending to details of the show. They have a lot to be proud of.
