Country Stampede To Leave Topeka

By Ryan Duey

The Country Stampede has announced that it will be leaving Topeka for a new home.

On Monday evening, Country Stampede announced on social media that the show will go on in 2024 at Azura Amphitheater in Bonner Springs.

The event is relocating amid a tax dispute between Heartland Park ownership and Shawnee County. Heartland Park’s management group announced its departure after this summer’s NHRA Nationals in July.

A statement from JC Entertainment states: “The Country Stampede will keep its roots in the State of Kansas while moving closer to the Kansas City metro area. This will provide a great opportunity to introduce new fans to the festival who haven’t had the opportunity to travel to its previous locations. We are thankful to all of the municipalities and venues that inquired about hosting the event in their communities, but overall found Azura Amphitheater to provide the best fit.”

Next year’s Country Stampede will run from June 27th to June 29th.
