The Pendleton Round-Up

The first Pendleton Round-Up in 1910 was to be "a frontier exhibition of picturesque pastimes, Indian and military spectacles, cowboy racing and bronco busting for the championship of the Northwest." It turned out to be all that and more. A century later it is the most traditional, largest outdoor rodeo in the nation and fills the second week in September with heart-pounding rodeo action, big name concerts, a nightly pageant, parades, traditional Native American dancing and drumming, a teepee village, bull riding, entertainment and more.
