February 16, 2018 @ 8:00 pm – February 18, 2018 @ 4:00 pm
49th Annual MSU Spartan Stampede Rodeo

The MSU Rodeo Club is proud to present the 49th annual Spartan Stampede Rodeo at the MSU Pavilion for Livestock Teaching and Research. This rodeo will showcase premier athletes from the ranks of the International Professional Rodeo Association (IPRA).

The MSU Rodeo Club originated in 1969. In addition to organizing the Spartan Stampede, the club sends a team to compete in various rodeos throughout the Ozark Region. The proceeds of the rodeo will be used by the MSU Rodeo Club to cover travel costs from MSU intercollegiate rodeo competitors. It will also help provide scholarship funds for current and prospective MSU students.
