Saddle Up for Thrills: Experience the Excitement of Canby Rodeo at the Clackamas County Fair!

Bronc Rider

Every August, as the summer sun shines bright, something truly special happens at our Clackamas County Fairgrounds—it’s fair time, and that means the Canby Rodeo is in full swing! This isn’t just any rodeo; it’s the heart and soul of our fair, adding an electrifying dimension to an already action-packed week.

The Canby Rodeo started galloping alongside the Clackamas County Fair back in 1958, and it was an instant hit. Imagine finding the perfect pair of boots that just somehow make every outfit better—that’s what the rodeo did for our fair. It’s become a highlight, where the energy ramps up and the crowds really get to cheering.

What makes the Canby Rodeo stand out? It’s all about community and excitement. People from all across the Northwest—and beyond—come together here, blending the feel of a big family reunion with the thrill of top-tier rodeo action. Everyone’s welcome, and there’s always a buzz of excitement in the air.

The rodeo itself is a thrill-seeker’s paradise. We’re talking bull riding, where brave cowboys hang on for a wild ride, and barrel racing, where speed and precision win the day. And let’s not forget the heart-stopping bareback and bronc riding—these events showcase some serious skill, as riders hold on tight to untamed horses, each trying to outdo the other in a spectacular display of agility and courage.

Around the rodeo ring, the rest of the fair pulses with life. There’s something for everyone: live music sets the soundtrack for your day, amazing local food keeps your energy up, and local artisans display their crafts, perfect for picking up something unique.

Each year, there’s always something new to check out, keeping the fair and rodeo fresh and exciting. Whether it’s a new food vendor, a different band, or a new competition in the rodeo arena, you’re guaranteed to find something that surprises and delights.

So why not make a day of it? Grab your cowboy hat, round up your friends and family, and head on over to the Clackamas County Fair and Canby Rodeo. It’s more than just an event; it’s a community celebration, a thrilling spectacle, and a perfect way to make lasting summer memories. I’m looking forward to seeing you there, ready to enjoy all the fun and excitement we have to offer!
