Ponoka hosts the Ponoka Stampede at the end of June / beginning of July each year. During this week-long event, the town is packed with camping trailers and people wanting to watch the parade, rodeo events, chuckwagon races or stage show, or participate in the games, activities, and rides in the midway. During Stampede time the population of Ponoka grows by approximately 400 percent.
