Throwback Thursday at Nashville North 2019

Whether it’s your first time or your fourth time at Nashville North and the Calgary Stampede, one thing is certain, there’s nothing like a Throwback Thursday to bring it back to all the best jams from the 90s and early 2000s.

Take it back with the tunes that first made you fall in love with country music. And, thanks to the Throwback Thursday Party hosted by Palm Bay, you too can go back to a simpler time – when the only choices were coolers, red or white wine and there weren’t 50 different kinds of craft beer.

When: Thursday, July 11, 2019
Where: Nashville North tent, Stampede Grounds
Admission: Free with admission to the grounds

This heart-pounding, world-class show never ceases to entertain as cowboys and cowgirls compete for $2 million in prize money. A few events you can expect to see are Barrel Racing, Tie-Down Roping, Steer Wrestling, Bull Riding, and more.
