The first Fallon Lions Club Stampede and 49er's day was held in the late 1940's and has continued un-interrupted ever since. The first events included festival type events, semi-pro rodeo, auto racing, country western music, parade, and several other envents. Several orgaizations were involved as vendors including the Kiwanis, Eagles, VFW, National Guard, Boy Scouts and others. When Churchill County built the present fairgrounds the design was influenced and construction was partially funded by donations from the Lions Club and the local Rodeo Assocations. The Dry Gulch is a direct holdover from the original Dry Gulch and the old fair grounds.
As the abiity to support a semi-pro rodeo on Labor Day weekend changed, the Junior Rodeo Association partnered with the Lions Club and the current relationship has existed every since.
The Fallon Lions Club Junior Rodeo and Fair will be held at the Churchill County Fairgrounds
August 31-September 3. Come support our young cowboys and cowgirls.
