Country Stampede in Search of New Home


TOPEKA, Kan. — After five years in Topeka, the Country Stampede may be in search of a new home. On Aug. 10, organizers of the three-day music festival shared that they are requesting proposals from surrounding communities to host future events.

The Country Stampede used to be held at Tuttle Creek State Park near Manhattan until 2019, when it moved to Heartland Park in Topeka.

The current site may no longer be an option according to Heartland Park owner and Landlord, Shelby Development, who stated that the facility may close due to Shawnee County continually raising property taxes up to $1,500 per day. Right now, they say that they are still scheduled for 2024 and they will be announcing artists this fall.
