There is nothing like a cowboy. Don’t believe the song. Mama’s have no say in whether their babies grow up to be cowboys. Every guy wants to be a cowboy. Not many of us get there. But here’s a chance to watch real cowboys on an amazing stage — The Goshen Stampede. And its just up the road in Connecticut.
The gates open Friday with a midway, vendors, petting zoo, Barrel racing and a Demolition Derby.
The Coutry 92.5 Stage brings performers each night with Travis Denning headlining Saturday night after the first day of Pro Rodeo competition. Saturday also features the Tri-State Truck Pull and a kid’s Rodeo.
Sunday’s final day brings the end of the PRCA Rodeo Competition Overflow as well as the Cowgirl Triathlon, Monster Truck Mania and Pro Quad Racers.
Looking to fulfill all your western dreams in one weekend? Look no further.
