Colorado has always prided itself on its rural open space. It’s a state where you can breathe fresh air and take in incredible sights of natural beauty—including vast, open prairie land and the towering Rocky Mountains—and yet still enjoy the pleasures of urban life in its cities. Greeley is the epitome of this wonderful balance, and the Stampede Arena is one of its best-known venues.
No visit to Greeley is complete without Stampede Arena tickets. The venue’s signature event is the Greeley Stampede, which began in 1928 as the Greeley Spud Rodeo, an acknowledgement of the area’s significant potato farming industry. It’s become a much more exhilarating blend of country-themed events since then.
The city of Greeley was named after industrialist Horace Greeley’s oft-repeated remark, “Go west, young man.” Surely its founders understood what Greeley meant when they came up on this pristine Colorado location, surrounded by natural beauty and yet perfect for a city. Every tourist that stops by is obligated to get Stampede Arena tickets and take in a show.
