Local Area Events
Pendleton Farmers' Market
Every Friday afternoon in summer, we block off Main Street for farmers, craftsmen, and vendors to gather and sell their wares. Just about everything you could wish for — at its freshest, most delicious, and most original! Our market slogan is "Make it, Bake it, or Grow it" — and sell it on Main Street! For nearly six full months (May-October) of the year, you will find high-quality seasonal fruits and vegetables, herbs, eggs, meats, and baked goods.
While the rodeo is the heart of the Round-Up week, the Round-Up refers to all of the excitement that draws thousands to Pendleton in the second full week in September each year.Pendleton's Main Street is closed to motorized traffic and becomes a carnival grounds with vendors and live music throughout the week. Whether it's the Happy Canyon Night Show Pageant, the Indian Pow-Wows and vendor booths, the Westward-Ho! Parade or the nightly shows on Main Street, the whole town transforms into a fun-filled festival with something for everyone.
