101st Wolf Point Wild Horse Stampede Set For July 10-13

The 101st Annual Wolf Point Wild Horse Stampede will start Wednesday, July 10, and runs through Saturday, July 13 at the Marvin Brookman Stadium, Wolf Point. Each night will see a Wild Horse race, and there will be a carnival all four days. This year’s Grand Marshal is 58 -year-old Don Whitmus, who serves on the Wild Horse Stampede Committee.

On Wednesday, the stampede kicks off with a Pitchfork Fondue from 4:30-6 p.m., with the Wild Horse Ranch Rodeo following, and a Breaking Eight concert to close the evening. The PRCA Rodeo will take place Thursday-Saturday night, starting at 7 p.m. Children 6 and under are free to attend, and don’t forget to wear pink on Thursday for “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” night, which raises awareness for those affected by breast cancer and funding for research towards a cure. Miss Rodeo Montana will host the Kids Stick Horse Rodeo.

The Stampede parade theme is “Montana Roots and Cowboys Boots,” and will take place Friday and Saturday at 1 p.m. An all-class reunion, Stampede Fun Run, Catholic Hamburger Stand on Main Street, and Museum Pancake Breakfast will make the Stampede Week an event full of community pride.
