About Connecticut Rodeos

Connecticut rodeos might not be at the top of your list, but it’s important to support and promote rodeos in the Northeast as much as we promote and support rodeos in the Southwest. If you want to see more rodeos in Connecticut, make sure to reach out and we can get you connected to folks who can make it happen. It’s time to put rodeo at the forefront of American sports and show that people from all walks of life can enjoy rodeo. Are you passionate about supporting Connecticut Rodeos?

Goshen Stampede Rodeo

The Goshen Stampede, an annual event since 2006, has become the largest rodeo and gymkhana event in Connecticut. It offers unique attractions such as Truck Pulls and Demo Derbies, along with fan-favorite food, making it a three-day extravaganza of fun. The Goshen Stampede is organized by the Goshen Stampede, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The net proceeds generated from this event are used to support local and national charitable causes through Goshen Stampede, Inc., a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Moreover, Goshen Stampede, Inc. is a proud member of the Association of Connecticut Fairs (ACF) and the International Association of Fairs & Expositions (IAFE).

Are There Rodeos in Connecticut?

The short answer is yes. But the only one that I can find online, is the one listed above. It looks like the Goshen Stampede is a family-friendly, and community-loved event. It’s clear that rodeos are loved in the east as much as in the west, so why don’t we see more of them? That’s a great question we can’t necessarily answer. If you have any insight, we would love to know! In the meantime, we will do everything we can to support the sport of rodeo in the east, starting with the Goshen Stampede.
