Kurt “Moldy” Moldrup has worked festival security since the Stampede’s first year in 1996. He was soon promoted to Festival Security Manager and oversees a team of over 100 employees who help keep the festival safe and enjoyable for its patrons.
When not working for Country Stampede, Kurt is employed with the Riley County Police Department as a Captain in the Patrol Division. Kurt is married to Sue and has 11 children, all of which are or have been home educated. As a result, Kurt also has to work extra jobs and works as a security guard for the Manhattan Town Center Mall (over 26 years of service) and is employed by Kansas State Athletic Operations where he is the parking manager for all events that occur at Bramlage Coliseum and Bill Snyder family Stadium, home of the Wildcats! When Kurt is not working he enjoys spending time with his wife of over 30 years, children, and 16 grandchildren (and counting).
