Marysville Stampede Produced by The Flying U Rodeo
The Marysville Stampede is an annual celebration of our Western and rodeo heritage and is a wonderful source of affordable family entertainment. Many of the proceeds of this event benefit the community with support of the Yuba County and Sutter County Sheriff’s Posses, the Marysville Fire Department, the Friends of the Yuba-Sutter Fair, Active 20/30 Club, Marysville Rotary, local schools, and other non-profit organizations.
The success of the Marysville Stampede is also very dependent on our many sponsors. At this time we would like to thank the many businesses and individuals that have participated with financial support and services over the past years. With the help of our sponsors, community volunteers and our staff, Cotton and the Flying U Rodeo Company strive to bring the best and only Professional sport to the Yuba - Sutter area.
Cotton Rosser, also called the "King of the Cowboys" is a living legend in the Western and Rodeo world. He is known for his quality of rodeo production. After a tragic tractor accident ended his career as an up and coming rodeo champion, Cotton purchased the Flying U Rodeo Company. For many years now, Cotton and his family have worked hard to make the Flying U one of the most successful rodeo stock contracting and production companies in Professional Rodeo. Cotton has been know for many years now for his colorful opening ceremonies and entertaining rodeo productions. According to Cotton, rodeo is not just a sport but show business where the people in grandstands are the most important part of the show. He says the audience must be entertained or they will go elsewhere to spend their hard earned dollar. Cotton and the Flying U family and crew strive to do just that, traveling many miles each year playing to audiences all over the Western United States.
