Miss Kitsap Fair and Stampede
Kassidy Callahan has grown up in Kitsap County and has spent many years enjoying the Bremerton rodeo. She attended her first one at two weeks old, and has not missed one since. She has also helped the Wranglers get ready for this rodeo for many years now, with more to come.
Kassidy is currently going to Olympic College working hard to become a NICU nurse one day. She has spent many years involved in programs such as WAHSET and 4-H. With being involved in 4-H since she was little, she grew to love riding horses more each year. WAHSET has pushed Kassidy to create new goals out of her comfort zone and to achieve them. This helped her branch out to becoming Miss Kitsap Fair & Stampede 2023. Kassidy would love for you all to come out to the Kitsap Fair & Stampede August 23-27!

Born and raised in Kitsap County, 2023 Junior Miss Kitsap Fair & Stampede, Kyla Seevers is the 13 year old daughter of Jeremy and Kristin Seevers. She has an older brother Cayden and a younger sister Chayleigh.
Kyla is an honor student at Poulsbo Middle School where she participates in multiple sports and activities. She is an active member in the North Kitsap FFA program along with her older brother. Outside of school, she enjoys spending time with family, art, swimming, and of course, riding her horse Charlie!
She has been around horses and livestock her whole life, beginning to ride around 3 years old. She participated in her first junior rodeo season at 5 and has been hooked on rodeos ever since! Kyla has a great passion for the animals as well, with a goal of being a large animal veterinarian when she’s older.
At the age of 7, Kyla had the great honor of representing the Kitsap Fair & Stampede as Miss Katie Kitsap. She is so excited to once again represent the Kitsap Fair, Kitsap Stampede, and the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association!
