The 2021 Weevil Stampede will be held April 1-3 at the Drew County Fairgrounds.

Fifteen teams from the Ozark region are expected to participate.

The UAM Rodeo Team is consistently competitive at both the regional and national levels. UAM students have qualified for the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper, Wyoming, seven years in a row. Last year’s finals were canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This year’s event will be in compliance with state health guidelines. Face masks will be required and seating will be limited to about 400 people, according to UAM Rodeo Coach Rusty Jones.

The Weevil Stampede will begin at 7 p.m. on April 1 and April 2. The championship round will begin at 1 p.m. on April 3. Concessions and parking will be available.
