In an effort to give the event some national recognition the Greeley Spud Rodeo era ended and, thus, began the age of the "Go West with Greeley" Rodeo. The name taken from the famous phrase by the city's name sake, Horace Greeley, who said "Go west young man. Go west."

The Greeley Independence Stampede entitlement came in 1972 by means of a community contest and featured: Pro Rodeos; kids rodeo; country and classic rock concerts; televised July 4th parade, a demolition derby, carnival midway, western art show, free stage entertainment, mixed with food and fun galore!

Based on one of the most-loved and celebrated movies of all time, Singin’ in the Rain is the story of the first Hollywood movie musical, a time when the silver screen found its voice and left silent movies and some of its stars behind. The MGM classic has been faithfully and lovingly adapted by Broadway legends Betty Comden and Adolph Green from their original award-winning screenplay. Each unforgettable scene, song and dance, is accounted for, including the show stopping title number, complete with an onstage rainstorm. Hilarious situations, snappy dialogue, and a hit-parade score of Hollywood standards make Singin’ in the Rain the perfect entertainment for any fan of the golden age of movie musicals.

The festivities begin with the raising of the Maypole, followed by a Grand March entrance. Costumed representatives from each of the five Scandinavian countries enter the park carrying the flag of their country, followed by the national anthems. Dancing and live music continue all day with opportunities for the audience to participate in some dances.

The folk-art of decorative painting on wood called rosemaling in Norway, and dalamaling in Sweden, will be well- represented. Other exhibitors will have hand-crafted items such as pottery, fabric, woodworking, jewelry, painting, metal work, photography, glass and more. All the exhibitors will have some Scandinavian inspired or traditional work.

The craft demonstration tent will have a combination of workshops and demonstrations, including hardangar and Swedish huck embroidery, spinning, lace knitting, and children's knitting lessons. At the Lefse Tent one can see demonstrations on how to prepare these famously thin Norwegian potato pancakes.
