Annual “Whoadeo” event at Dixie Stampede supports Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and celebrates the joy of reading

Families are invited to Dixie Stampede in Branson, MO, to a free, fun-filled day of games, face painting, animal exhibitions, giveaways and more. Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library will come to life at the annual stick horse rodeo and family fun day, Saturday, October 3. This is a free event designed to celebrate the joy of reading among families while children enjoy riding stick horses “rodeo style” in the Dixie Stampede performance arena. Dolly said,

“My Imagination Library ‘Whoadeo’ is a fun event for all ages. There’s nothing better for a child’s mind than reading, so it is my hope that with each book, the child will dream more, learn more, care and be more.”

“Whoadeo” will showcase kids’ events including Barrel Racing, Obstacle Course, and Bucking Horse competition, astride some of the wildest steeds in the stable. They will compete on a stick horse as they race around barrels, jump over obstacles and try their best not to get “bucked” off their horse. It’s Dolly’s true belief that all children are winners, so medals will be awarded to every kid who participates. Dixie Stampede will provide stick horses or children may bring their own.

All proceeds from Dixie Stampede Dinner & Show performance that evening, Saturday, October 3, will be donated to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library is a book-gifting program that mails free, age-appropriate books to children from birth to age five. To date, the organization has sent over 71 million free books to children in Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. Here in Missouri, there are 37 Imagination Library affiliate communities with 14,012 children enrolled in the program.
