Ford Idaho Center

One asset that brings a lot of visitors to Nampa is this massive complex of sports and entertainment venues in the northeast of the city. Established in the mid-1990s, the Ford Idaho Center is the largest facility of its kind in the Pacific Northwest, comprising the 12,279-capacity Ford Arena for a slew of major concerts and sports events, along with the 10,500-capacity Ford Amphitheater, which has hosted the likes of Bob Dylan, Shania Twain and James Taylor. Added to these are the Ford Theater and the 110-acre Horse Park, the leading horse facility in the Northwest.

The Ford Idaho Center is a complex of sports and entertainment venues in Nampa, Idaho, approximately 15 miles west of Boise. This brings us to the biggest event on the center’s calendar: The Snake River Stampede rodeo goes down during the third week of July and takes its place among the top 12 rodeos recognized by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association. There’s a lot going on both in Nampa and at the Ford Idaho Center during these five days, from parades to rope & run to mutton busting and a Miss Rodeo Idaho Competition.
