THE STAMPEDE RETURNS TO MIDDLETOWN’S ORANGE COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS. Dust off those hats and boots and come on out for return of the Orange County’s biggest outdoor Rodeo! Enjoy lawn seating at The Orange County Fairgrounds outdoor concert and rodeo area “The Barn” where you can bring your own chairs, blankets, etc. to get comfy on the grass. On-site vendors include food, adult beverage and western wear vendors.

The Orange County Stampede is presented by Painted Pony Rodeo. Shawn Graham is the proud owner and operator of The Painted Pony Championship Rodeo. His passion for rodeo is what has kept this western tradition alive here in New York. The Painted Pony now has a traveling road show in full swing up and down the east coast. Including this stop at the Orange County Fairgrounds.


One of the most amazing experiences I have had with my family. My two daughters absolutely love it from beginning to end. Their Favorite was the women’s barrel racing. So empowering and inspiring to see women do this. My six year old is now trying to convince us to buy her a horse. My husband and I love the BBQ dinner before the rodeo. The ribs were superb. Needless to say we will definitely do it again when we visit Lake George next summer. Thank you for the great experience and for keep American Culture Alive.

We loved it. My kids wanted to go back the next night!! The buffet before was delicious and an excellent value! I can’t wait to return next year!

A fun family night out at the rodeo. We loved that they honored all Veterans and said a thoughtful prayer about the participants and the animals before they began. Great events and good food. We will definitely be back!

My four year old and I had so much fun here. I really loved it and he was amused as well…he also met some kid pals down by the railing. I’m not the “country” type by any means. More of a city slicker, if you will…this was the coolest thing I did in Lake George and it was the coolest thing I’d done in a good long while. I was so surprised by the difficulty of the sport, the bravery, and the wildness of it all. It was insane. Loved it.


We were in the Lake George area on vacation and decided to go to the rodeo and bbq. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The bbq was great, with lots of sides and even dessert. We all enjoyed our first rodeo. Love that everyone sings the anthem and says the cowboy prayer. The different rodeo sports they competed in were action packed and exciting. We had a wonderful time. I definitely recommend attending.

An excellent experience! We have been going to Lake George for the past two years and have visited this each time. The buffet before is great and the rodeo always a great time! Friendly staff makes it even more enjoyable.

Excellent show for the entire family! Came with my daughters 4H group. Of course, they were excited as it’s a horse group. I was unsure what to expect and had a 14 year old “non-horse girl” who complained for days that she’d be bored. What a surprise- we all enjoyed it! Will definitely be back again- even the 14 year old!
