Everyone is welcome to join us in showcasing the unique and varied businesses and experiences available here.

Glenwood Ketchum Kalf Rodeo
Jun 15 – Jun 16 all-day

Entrance to the famous Glenwood Rodeo Arena

The Ketchum Kalf Rodeo typically attracts more than 4,000 visitors during Father’s Day Week End each year in June. The entrance to the famous Glenwood Rodeo Arena takes you back in time to a place where cowboys rode the ranges, herded cattle, busted broncs, and hard livin’ was a thing to be enjoyed and proud of.

The first Glenwood rodeo was started in 1934 at the Conboy Place by a group called Camas Prairie and Vicinity Pioneer Association, and was later taken over by the Mt. Adams Cattle Association. Admission at that time was 40 cents. It was eventually moved to the present site west of Glenwood on ground donated by Pete Conboy. Agnes Miller and Jayne Kreps were the first women to sell coffee and donuts, and that started the Glenwood Women’s Club stand. The coffee was heated over a camp fire and they had a small table. C’mon by and share a cup. Visit the website for more information.

Riverfest2015-6Bring your neighbor, or meet your neighbor, while exploring and enjoying the beautiful White Salmon River which floats like an artery through our community. At a very reduced rate, our local outfitters make it possible for you to see the river, now floating through the former Northwestern reservoir, past the former Condit Dam site, all the way into the Columbia River.

The White Salmon River Fest and Symposium celebrates the White Salmon River and the environment, community, and history that surrounds it. The river is an invaluable social, recreational, and economic benefit to those who call it home. The River Fest and Symposium aims to gather the local boating and non-boating community for a day of celebration, education, legendary whitewater, food, dance, and more.

Riverfest2015-3In celebration of the White Salmon River there will be guest speakers, a community raft float, kayak clinics, a kayak slalom, and a party at Big Man’s BBQ! Our goal is to provide an educational resource for the professionals that work on the river and the community members that live nearby.

Since the removal of Condit Dam in 2012, the event’s symposium portion has become the premier resource for the most up-to-date information on the decommission process. The changes occurring in the river canyon as a result of this groundbreaking hydropower removal project are of epic proportions. Join us to learn more about what is happening on your favorite Pacific Northwest River.
