Pendleton Cattle Barons was created in honor of Eastern Oregon’s cattlemen and ranchers and their legacy. It’s an annual celebration of the region’s ranching roots, with proceeds going to a worthy cause. It’s about scholarships! 100% of the proceeds of the Pendleton Cattle Barons weekend create scholarships for regional students attending college and majoring in agriculture. Pendleton Cattle Barons weekend is as western as it gets.
