The second weekend in August, just like clockwork, a thundering sound emanates from the small town of Omak, Washington. It’s the sound of hoofbeats rumbling and the steady beat of drums. It’s a mighty event that started as a small dream by two Okanogan County stockmen in 1933.

140-miles northwest of Spokane you’ll find Omak. A simple, scenic drive through north-central Washington, Omak truly comes alive during the Stampede. It’s three days of exhilarating action celebrating the history and paying homage to the tribes who once gathered there.

While you’re visiting, check out the rodeo, gasp at the world-famous Suicide Race or wander through the Indian Encampment & Pow Wow and take part in a stick game, sponsored by the Colville Confederated Tribes. Immerse yourself in the history, the culture of days gone by and find your way from Spokane to Omak for a weekend of adventure.
