The festival features 4 stages with over 30 provincial, national, and international touring artists performing from a wide range of genres, including country, Celtic, blues, gospel, Americana, bluegrass, world music, contemporary and traditional folk, rock , and many things in between.
The Grande Prairie Stompede is made up of a volunteer committee of hard-working, dedicated local people.
They all have the same goal in mind – provide a first-class, entertaining and exciting event highlighted by professional rodeo and chuckwagon racing.
Stompede is entering its 34th year in 2011 and continues to provide thrills and chills to 30,000 spectators annually at Evergreen Park every spring.
Stompede is the first show of the year for chuckwagon racing and the first big event of the outdoor season for the pro rodeo competitors.
The Stompede committe is made up of 13 directors and four executive members. It is a Not-For-Profit organization. All of the proceeds from Stompede are given back to the community. Over the years Stompede has provided thousands of dollars for improvements and projects at Evergreen Park.
Stompede allows local chuckwagon drivers and professional rodeo competitors to showcase their talents in their own back yard and, ultimately, promotes both sports in the Peace Country so young people are inspired to keep the tradition going
