Saturday, July 16th 11 AM Downtown Nampa Streets The Snake River Stampede Rodeo Parade will officially kick off the rodeo week's festivities Saturday, July 16th in downtown Nampa. The Snake River Stampede Rodeo Parade, one of the largest all-horse drawn parades in the nation, is a longstanding tradition in Nampa, dating back to the early 1920's. One of the Stampede's trademarks is the stage coach which is an authentic mud wagon coach used just after the turn of the 20th century on a route between Silver City and Murphy. Riding clubs from all over the Northwest will be present, with an expected attendance of over 400 participants. The parade route begins on Sixth Avenue South and winds through town past the Civic Center and City Hall. Click on the link below for a printable parade route map.

Parade participants will receive a free pass to the rodeo. For safety reasons, we do not allow drills or anything that might stop or slow the parede. It is very important that we keep the parade together without gaps since gaps encourage automobile drivers to try to dart through the parade line. There are no motorized vehicles allowed in the parade. The parade route begins on Sixth Avenue South, moves to Second Street South, and passes by the Civic Center and City Hall on it's way to 14th Avenue South where it turns for a block, turns again on third Street South and returns to it's starting point. The majority of spectators line up on Second Street South from the Civic Center lawn to downtown.
