Planning For 2017 Edition Underway
Spencerville – The Spencerville Stampede has been a mainstay of our community for the past 5 years. We would like to sincerely thank all of our supporters for continually standing behind us while we evolved into a marquee event in the Leeds and Grenville County and the Edwardsburg/Cardinal Township.
The festival organizers wish to announce that the 2016 edition of The Spencerville Stampede will not take place. This decision was made based on several factors. As many people will know, funding is always critical to make such an amazing event happen, and for 2016 we received notice of support from the province of Ontario, later than expected, and we are not able to allocate the dollars so graciously offered to us in a timely manner.
Though we exhausted every possible avenue to bring a 2016 edition, the weakness of the Canadian dollar, the market competition, and the questions surrounding a suitable venue proved to be challenges we could not properly overcome in time.
We are excited to already be working on a 2017 edition of The Spencerville Stampede! We have so many incredible supporters, and want you all to know that we are working on an incredible event for 2017.
From the entire staff at The Spencerville Stampede, we thank you for your continued support, and are excited for the future. We trust that you’ll understand our decision was not made lightly, and we would be doing a disservice to our community to try and hastily prepare an event for this year.
In the meantime we hope you enjoy your summer, and get out and support as many local events as possible and prove that our community is one of the best!
The Spencerville Stampede Committee
