Red Bluff Round-Up History

Established in 1921 as part of the Tehama County Fair, the Red Bluff Round-Up was the first Northern California rodeo to become a member of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), then known as the Cowboys' Turtle Association. The event remains to this day, making it through World War Two, the Great Depression, hoof and mouth disease outbreaks and pandemic waves.

When Is the Red Bluff Round-Up? 

Traditionally, this three-day rodeo is hosted toward the end of April drawing fans from across the country. The event's economic impact is enormous for the town, with estimates of $5 million in annual revenue for this area. The entire town participates and hosts foot races, pancake breakfasts, bowling tournaments, chili contests, chamber mixes, street dances and many other activities. It is no wonder the event is known as the biggest rodeo in California!

The Annual Wild Ride

In 2000, a finale segment — the Wild Ride  — was added to the rodeo event, winning the hearts of Round-Up fans. During this event, roughstock cowboys compete in full costume and are judged not only for their rides but for the creativity of their outfits as well.
