It’s a time of immense pride and celebration for all of us here at the Clackamas County Fair and Canby Rodeo as we share the joyful news: The Clackamas County Fair and Canby Rodeo have been officially inducted into the Miss Rodeo Oregon Hall of Fame! This prestigious honor is not just a recognition of our annual events but a celebration of our enduring commitment to community spirit and the western lifestyle.

Since the inception of the Canby Rodeo in 1958 and its pairing with the Clackamas County Fair, we have been a beacon of tradition, bringing together generations of families, cowboys, and cowgirls from across Oregon and beyond. Our events have always been more than just a spectacle; they are a cornerstone of community gathering and celebration of rural life.

This induction into the Miss Rodeo Oregon Hall of Fame is particularly special because it underscores the significant role that our fair and rodeo play in promoting rodeo sports and the cultural heritage of Oregon. Miss Rodeo Oregon has long been an ambassador for rodeo tradition, advocating for education and engagement, values that resonate deeply with our own missions.

Reflecting on our journey, it’s the stories of individual participants—rodeo queens, fearless riders, dedicated volunteers—that weave the rich tapestry of our fair’s history. Their dedication and passion are what breathe life into each event and create the memorable experiences that we all cherish year after year.

As we celebrate this honor, we also look to the future. We are inspired to continue fostering these traditions that promote not only entertainment but also education and cultural appreciation. Our goal remains to create a space where everyone can experience the thrill of rodeo and the joy of the fair, making lifelong memories in the process.

We extend our deepest gratitude to Miss Rodeo Oregon for this recognition and to every visitor, participant, and supporter who has been part of our story. Here’s to many more years of rodeo thrills and fair fun!

Thank you all for being a part of this incredible journey. Here’s to making even more memories together!

Let’s keep this legacy alive and thriving—join us at the next Clackamas County Fair and Canby Rodeo, where history is made and traditions are celebrated. See you there!
