It’s a stampede – every June at the Dickson Stampede Days Rodeo.

Longtime Dickson County residents Bobby and Lenore Rowe, who spent decades in professional rodeo as contestants, performers and producers, founded the Dickson Stampede Days Rodeo in 1988.

Today, some of the country’s top cowboys and cowgirls ride into Dickson County each year to compete for as much as $20‚000 in prize money.

Sanctioned by the International Pro Rodeo Association and staged at the Dickson County Fairgrounds‚ the two-day rodeo attracts more than 2‚500 people each night.

Over the years the rodeo has spurred many of the upgrades to the Dickson County Fairgrounds and has brought some of the best entertainers in the rodeo world to Dickson County.

Prize-money events include bareback riding‚ steer wrestling‚ tie down roping‚ saddle bronco riding‚ team roping‚ barrel racing and bull riding.
