We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Stampede Days

Friday June 4 - Saturday June 5



If Utah mamas didn’t heed Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings’ advice and, in fact, let their babies grow up to be cowboys, they’ll probably be at the 11th annual Stampede Days, Tooele County’s only pro rodeo.

Originally a two-evening rodeo, Stampede Days has evolved into two full days of crafts, entertainment, pony rides, a petting zoo and more. There’ll be Mutton Bustin’ each night at 7 p.m., where, against the aformentioned sound advice, mamas let their pre-registered children try to ride sheep, not bulls. This community festival is more fun than a bucket of belt buckles.

Also, Friday is the “Tough Enough to Wear Pink” fundraiser for breast-cancer awareness. Ever seen a cowboy in pink chaps? The event concludes Saturday with a fireworks display. Bring the family for the smell of hay, for tasty cowboy eats and for all the Western lore your poor ears can handle.

Stampede Days @ Deseret Peak Complex, 2930 West Highway 112, Tooele, 435-843-4020, June 4 & 5, 8 p.m. $5-$10.
