The Happy Canyon Pageant depicts the settling of the American West, beginning with a portrayal of the Native American way of life prior to the arrival of the white man, continuing with the arrival of Lewis and Clark, followed by the prairie schooners of the pioneers of the Oregon Trail and concluding with a reenactment of a frontier town's rollicking main street mishaps.

Big & Rich to headline Round-Up & Happy Canyon Concert

PENDLETON, Ore. – The award-winning country duo Big & Rich will be the main act of the Pendleton Round-Up & Happy Canyon concert on Sept. 6. Named new country duo of 2004 byBillboard magazine, Big Kenny and John Rich have been packing houses and producing hits for the decade that followed. Tickets will go on sale March 27.

"Big & Rich continues our tradition of bringing excellent artists to perform in Pendleton," Round-Up President Tim Hawkins said. "The energy they bring to the stage will be a great way to kick-off Round-Up Week, 2014. Tickets are sure to go fast for this duo, and all the other events that come the second full week of September."

Happy Canyon President Jason Hill agrees.

"Our group has worked hard to try and bring some top flight talent in for this show, and this year is no exception," Hill said. "I’m excited for this concert and I know Round-Up and Happy Canyon directors hope fans across the region feel the same way."

Big Kenny and John Rich have made their marks in country music as singers and songwriters. Perhaps best known for their hit "Save a Horse (Ride a Cowboy)," the duo has influenced country music not just with their own hits, but with those recorded by other artists.
 
Opening our Kick-off concert this year is Old Dominion.  The band may not yet have a household name, but its members are behind many of the songs you hear in country music today. During the past 10 years of writing and honing their sound as a band, a number of their songs have been recorded and released by an impressive list that includes The Band Perry, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley, Chris Young, and Craig Morgan. And while it has been nice to experience radio success as song writers, the band has their scope unwaveringly aimed at delivering their music personally to the people.

Tickets for the concert will go on sale Thursday, March 27 at 8:30 a.m. at the Pendleton Round-Up and Happy Canyon office at 1114 SW Court Ave. Tickets will also be available for purchase online and by telephone at 541-276-2553 or 800-457-6336.

 

Welcome to the PBR

The toughest sport on dirt. The rules are simple. Place a wiry 150-pound cowboy on the back of a hulking, snorting temperamental 2,000 pound bull and see if he can ride the beast for an eternal eight seconds…with one hand strapped to the bull’s massive backside. Professional bull riding is a fierce, rough, and grueling sport with roots deeply imbedded in American culture. It’s America’s original extreme sport. The PBR has evolved into a captivating and adrenaline charged sporting event that features an all star cast of the greatest bull riders and bucking bulls in the world.

 

Pendleton Round-UpThe first Pendleton Round-Up 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 that and more.

For the initial show, all stores closed. “The largest crowd in Pendleton’s history,” 7,000 strong, showed up for the first show on September 29, 1910, a newspaper writer reported.

“The words ‘Pendleton’ and Round-Up’ are on the lips of thousands and will continue to be for months and years to come… The Round-Up is a whirlwind success.”

Grow it did. Two decades later, patrons showed up from 36 states and eight foreign countries. Following two years in which the Round-Up was not held, because of World War II, attendance climbed again, eventually reaching 50,000 or more for the four-day show.

“Success bred success and Round-Up stayed in high gear,” says the book “Let ‘er Buck! A history of the Pendleton Round-Up.”

The key to the success of the rodeo and its many attendant activities is community participation – volunteers.

Indian participation has been a strong attraction, too, in the Round-Up arena, at Happy Canyon, in the Indian Village and in the Westward Ho! Parade.

Long before women’s lib, the fairer sex got into the act at the Round-Up – cowgirls in the early days of the Round-Up could be as tough as men. In 1914 Bertha Blanchett, wife of cowboy Del Blancett, came within 12 points of winning the all-around title.

Midway through the Round-Up’s colorful history, a Eugene newspaper summed it up with a characterization that remains applicable today:

“In good times and bad, Pendleton has gone on with the Round-Up. People over on the Umatilla have always been willing to take a chance. Maybe that’s the real cowboy spirit. Maybe it’s a little bit tougher brand of civic spirit. Anyhow, in Pendleton, the show goes on.”
