The rodeo features Canadian Professional Rodeo Association action including one of the world's most dangerous events - Bull Riding.

You'll see all of the top cowboys - international rodeo competitors from Canada and the United States.
The Williams Lake Stampede is also pleased to present the ever-popular Mountain Race as well. Once the horn blows, those riders and horses provide extreme rodeo entertainment as they zig zag down the hill and onto the track for the dash to the finish line in front of the grand stand.
These events and many, many more all come together to create a great family fun filled rodeo and community-wide event - the World Famous Williams Lake Stampede! Don't miss one minute of the excitement in the heart of British Columbia's Cowboy Country - The Cariboo! This is truly one of BC's most beautiful regions. Home to the Cariboo Gold Rush, cowboys and cattle ranching, incredible fishing and outdoor recreation! Be sure to plan enough time to experience all that the Cariboo has to offer in the Williams Lake area.
