Grand finale at Dolly Parton's Stampede

Whoadeo Wrap Up And Special Thanks!

Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2018 Whoadeo such a great success!

On October 6, 2018, Dolly Parton’s Stampede hosted its 15th annual “WHOADEO” Stick Horse Rodeo & Family Fun Day. This fun-filled event benefits Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

Little cowboys and cowgirls raced around on stick horses, competing in barrel racing, obstacle course and bucking horse contests.

Because Stampede owner Dolly Parton believes every child is a winner, each participant received a genuine Stampede medal to take home with bragging rights. In addition to all the rodeo fun, the event inspires families to read together, and 100% of proceeds from that evening’s Stampede performance benefited Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library in Stone and Taney counties of Missouri.

We want to say a special thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this another successful year! Many thanks to everyone who attended. It was so much fun seeing all the great stick horse riders and we look forward to seeing everyone next year.
