You all hear now it’s soon to be Rodeo Time in Joseph. The PRCA Chief Joseph Days Rodeo is celebrating its 75 years tradition of providing an established premier rodeo experience. We can truly say to our vendors that “You’re gonna love it here!” with the thousands of rodeo fans that gather daily to shop at the vendor areas.

The rich and beautiful Wallowa Mountains hovering over Main Street Joseph and with its famous Main Street art walk which includes 15 life-size bronzes dynamically depict the city’s century old western heritage.

This all highlights an exceptional venue. The shoppers roam up and down Main Street and through the vendor areas, often stopping to pick up a variety of items.

Let’s ride this one together as we prepare to enjoy our Annual Chief Joseph Days from July 28 to August 1, 2021. Also, we remind you that in 2019, once again we topped our prior year’s attendance.
