The Tom Thumb Texas Stampede, one of the top four rodeos in Texas, will take place November 8 and 9 at the Allen Event Center, in Allen. In partnership with the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, the Texas Stampede is a fully sanctioned PRCA rodeo. Each of the three action-packed performances include many of rodeo’s top athletes competing in bull riding, saddle bronc riding, team roping, steer wrestling, bareback riding, tie-down roping and barrel racing.
In addition to the rodeo, there are several family oriented activities, including the Texas Stampede Christmas Marketplace, the Western Heritage display area, an art and photography contest, kid-friendly Rodeo U and a kid’s interactive area with fun activities specially designed for young cowpokes. The mission of Texas Stampede is to improve the quality of life for children and families served through support of children’s charities in North Texas.
The Western Festival and Christmas Marketplace are open both days from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., with the rodeo event at 7:30 p.m., November 8 and noon and 7:30 p.m., November 9. A concert will follow each of the evening performances.
