The Wild Horse Stampede is the oldest professional rodeo in Montana. The
Wolf Point Chamber of Commerce and Agriculture officially took the Stampede
over in 1915.
It was started by the Assiniboine and Sioux Indians as an
Indian day for riding and celebration and was called "Ride 'em Sioux
Celebration". Local cowboys soon joined in and all would ride full gallop
through the frontier town of the time.
It is held the second weekend in July. It includes 3 days of rodeo and
parades with a carnival and many other events.

evolved into a full fledged, sanctioned, Pro Rodeo Cowboy Association rodeo,
