The Pendleton Round-Up at the Pendleton Round-Up Stadium is a major annual rodeo in Pendleton, Oregon, United States. Held during the second full week of September each year since 1910, the rodeo brings roughly 50,000 people every year to the city of Pendleton.[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 non-profit organization July 29, 1910, as the "Northwestern Frontier Exhibition Association."[4] The rodeo was primarily a creation of local ranchers led by Herman Rosenberg.

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]

Events

There are ten events in which cowboys (and girls in Barrel Racing) from all over the United States and Canada compete:

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.

"Indian War Dancers" at the 1911 Round-Up

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.
