Penn Valley

Celebrating Our

Western Heritage:

Penn Valley Rodeo

By Teresa Dietrich

The sport of Rodeo started in early

ranching days of the wild west as a

way for local ranchers to show off

their skills and get together for a picnic

including the famous “deep pit” BBQ and

other foods. Penn Valley was the “breadbasket”

for the region, providing much of the

milk, beef, produce and other foods to the

gold mining camps in the region so there

were plenty of competitors.

The Penn Valley Community Rodeo Association

keeps the historical origins of our

roots alive today by bringing the community

together to celebrate our great western and

ranching heritage with a CCPRA Rodeo.

Delicious BBQ, fresh Pie à la Mode and cold

drinks are on tap as well as other treats from

local non-profit organizations. Vendors, music,

Rodeo Dance, and a kids zone combine

with the thrills of professional rodeo events

including Bull Riding, Saddle Bronc, Bareback

Bronc, Barrel Racing and Roping to

make for a fun community event.

The town of Penn Valley also hosts a good

old-fashioned hometown Rodeo Parade.

Local businesses get all decked out for the

Rodeo Week Best Decorated competition

the week prior to the actual rodeo.

the American Dream Alive!
