Event organizer Bob Larson came up with the idea one winter day, hoping to create a spring attraction for Tillamook, eyeing the fairgrounds indoor arena as an ideal location. From humble beginnings, the idea grew into a house-packing showstopper. The first event drew around 700 guests; 2019’s estimated attendance was 1,100.

“We do as much as we can every year to change up the event so it doesn’t get stale,” Larson said. “Something that’s really drawn a lot of attention to this event is how up close and personal it is when the bulls and horses come out of the chutes; it’s really a fun event versus being at a big rodeo where you’re so far away you really can’t see anything.”
