After COVID canceled last year’s event, the 54th Salem Stampede Championship Rodeo is returning to the Salem Civic Center Friday, January 7.

This year’s event will bring the return of rodeo’s eight most popular events, as well as Boot Barns mutton busting.

In addition, this year’s event will feature the comedy of multi-award winning rodeo clown Mike Wentworth, who’s one of the five finalists for 2021 IPRA Clown of the Year.

Several participants will be from the Roanoke Valley and Virginia area, since this has become a hotbed for up-and-coming rodeo contestants.
