Preserving our western heritage one scholarship at a time


Pendleton Cattle Barons was created in honor of our region’s cattlemen and ranchers and their legacy. It’s an annual celebration of our 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! We work hard to bring you a spectacular weekend of events. Come join us!
