New Extreme Country Stampede Tour Coming to York

A rodeo, country music concert, extreme freestyle motocross show, monster truck rides, hot air balloon rides, wrapped up into one extreme package for a one of a kind entertainment experience – the Extreme Country Stampede Tour - is coming to York for the first time ever!
The event kicks off Friday, June 3, at 6 p.m. at The American Legion Post 96 in York with an Extreme Cowboy Auction and Casino Night featuring live country bands, cowboys, casino games, hot air balloon rides and an auction. Proceeds from the Casino Night will benefit The American Legion Post 96 and proceeds from the auction will benefit Breast Care at York Hospital. Admission is free.
The Extreme Country Stampede Tour follows on Saturday and Sunday, June 4 and 5, at York’s Wild Kingdom (gates open at noon). Up and coming country musicians including Corey Cox and Rachel Timberlake will perform, and motocross sensations the Ive’s Brothers and their Ball of Steel, and of course, the World Cup Bull Riders will keep Stampede attendees on the edge of their seats.
Former bull riding champion, Kenny Churchill, and owner of A1 Entertainment Ryan Conley wanted to create a unique, inexpensive, family-friendly event. They also wanted to help organizations like York Hospital. This is their way of giving back.
“I had a great career, now I want to raise awareness for great organizations,” said Churchill.
For tickets, call York Hospital’s Friendraising Office at (207) 351-2385. $5 of every advanced ticket sold at York Hospital will be donated to Breast Care.
