Much more than a western rodeo the Round-Up began in 1910 as a celebration by farmers ranchers and native American Indian tribes marking the end of the harvest growing season in Eastern Oregon. More than 7000 visitors saw that first show. Today more than 70000 visitors enjoy this famous Pendleton Round-Up Rodeo which has grown to a week-long event. It now features the Happy Canyon Night Show concerts professional bull riding parades native Indian beauty contests street shows carnivals Hall of Fame induction ceremonies and more.
