The first Fallon Lions Club Stampede and 49er’s day was held in the late 1940’s and has continued uninterrupted ever since. The first events included festival type events, semi-pro rodeo, auto racing, country western music, parade, and several other events. Several organizations were involved as vendors including the Kiwanis, Eagles, VFW, National Guard, Boy Scouts and others. When Churchill County built the present fairgrounds the design was influenced and construction was partially funded by donations from the Lions Club and the local Rodeo Associations. The Dry Gulch is a direct holdover from the original Dry Gulch and the old fairgrounds.
As the ability to support a semi-pro rodeo on Labor Day weekend changed, the Junior Rodeo Association partnered with the Lions Club and the current relationship has existed every since.
