Since the turn of the century La Pine Rodeo has been a local tradition since it was started by families as a community festival and a parade. for the past 22 years since the rodeo became an offical NPRA rodeo and a non-profit, this event depends on the spirit, dedication, hard work and collaboration of over 100 volunteer members to provide our community with an opportunity to experience true western heritage through the historical sport of rodeo and to host one of the best small rodeos in the Pacific Northwest .

We are proud to be able to showcase top rodeo talent and provide family entertainment to our community and visitors. We are even more proud to be able to help support local non-profit groups in our communities.

Many of our volunteers are never seen by rodeo fans, because they are to busy behind the scenes making sure everything is ready and each performance.

We have volunteers sharing their talent and time by working in the ticket office, cooking, performing ground maintenance, managing the gates, helping contestants park their trailers, helping fans park in the lot, and providing technical support. Our volunteers help prepare arena chutes, and manage the arena and the stock, just to mention a few of the hundreds of jobs that make the rodeo successful. But most importantly we can not forget about all of the countless hours and work days that go into preparing for the rodeo throughout the year to make this " The Greatest Little Rodeo In Oregon".

Our volunteers come from many walks of life; from students to doctors, ranchers to teachers; we represent many areas of our community. Christmas Valley, Gilchrist, Redmond, Terrebonne, Sisters and Bend residents have volunteered at the La Pine Rodeo for many years and generations of families have been volunteers, becoming part of the La Pine Rodeo family and history with one common goal, our volunteers have the opportunity to meet new people, have fun, and to make a positive impact. For many of the volunteers it’s about keeping the tradition of rodeo alive in the community. No one seems to remember the hard work as much as they remember the friendships, fun, non-profits supported and the opportunity we’ve had supporting the sport of rodeo and a community we call home.

Over 100 years of community support has made the La Pine Rodeo into the great organization it is today!

Thank You to all of our Volunteers!!
