One of Ponoka’s signature events — although cancelled in 2020 because of COVID-19 — is the Ponoka Stampede.
The Ponoka Stampede is one of the world’s largest rodeos for payouts, and it features the largest single-day bull-riding event in the world.
The event has 80,000 fans, more than 80 years of history, and $800,000 in prize money.
Organizers are vowing to hold the rodeo once again in 2021. For more information when planning your future trip, check this website.
