The Pendleton Round-Up is a major annual rodeo in the northwestern United States, at Pendleton in northeastern Oregon. Held at the Pendleton Round-Up Stadium during the second full week of September each year since 1910, the rodeo brings roughly 50,000 people every year to the city.[2] The Pendleton Round-Up is a member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA). The ProRodeo Hall of Fame in Colorado Springs, Colorado, inducted the Pendleton Round-Up in 2008.[3]

The Round-Up was incorporated as a not-for-profit organization 501(C) 4 July 29, 1910, as the "Northwestern Frontier Exhibition Association."[4] The rodeo was primarily a creation of local ranchers led by Herman Rosenberg.

The Pendleton Round-Up has won the prestigious PRCA Large Outdoor Rodeo of the Year award five times: 2003, 2010, 2015, 2016 and 2017.

Bronc rider Bonnie McCarroll (1897–1929) died in a rodeo accident at Pendleton. The PRCA, formed in 1936, initially scheduled no events for women as a result of her death.[5]

The fourth annual round-up in September 1913 drew 50,000 spectators.[6]

History

The first Pendleton Round-up was held in 1910, born of a "communistic" desire to establish a city park for Pendleton. It was an immediate success, and grew in scale dramatically in each of its first several years.[6]

Events

There are ten events in which cowboys (and girls in Barrel Racing) from all over the United States and Canada compete. The All-Around Cowboy is awarded to the competitor who wins the most amount of money in the required amount of events.

Round-Up week

Every Round-Up week begins with the Dress Up Parade, on the Saturday before the rodeo, in which different groups throughout Eastern Oregon, including Boy and Girl Scouts, Pendleton High School Band, the Children's Rodeo, and many local businesses, build floats and compete for 1st place.

Friday of Round-Up week is the Westward Ho! parade, in which every entrant must be in a non-motorized vehicle, most of which are authentic covered wagons and horse-drawn buggies, though some choose to ride horseback or walk.

The Monday and Tuesday before the rodeo begins the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) come and compete in the Happy Canyon Arena.

Wednesday is when both Round-Up and Happy Canyon begin.
