Boomtown Days/Stampede

2020 BOOMTOWN DAYS: July 13 to 19


GREAT NEWS! Boomtown Days will be happening this summer – it will just be “reimagined” to ensure it will be a safe, yet fun, event for all!

Although we’ll miss the Stampede Rodeo & Lawnmower Races, the week promises to be filled with activities including a parade tour, an outdoor market, a garden tour, a Chamber promotion, fundraisers, contests, prizes, entertainment & much more!

Following is a brief outline of what is happening (so far!) in Shaunavon during Boomtown 2020.  More events and activities are being planned - check back often for more details as they become available.

Why not JOIN IN the “Fun in the Sun”? All clubs, organizations & businesses are welcome to participate with their own event, sale, fundraiser or contest throughout the week of July 13 to 19 – get creative!
