The Tillamook County Rodeo Association, Inc. was founded in 1986 with the idea of providing an additional entertainment event to the area.
The Rodeo also acts as an economic draw and enhancement for Tillamook County. The first rodeo was held in June of 1987 and continues to occur the fourth weekend in June of every year.
The Tillamook County Rodeo Association is incorporated as a non-profit corporation, with its major objective to assist the youth of Tillamook County. This is done by offering grants upon request, providing fundraising opportunities at the Rodeo and funding a scholarship for each of the counties' high schools.

NORTHWEST PROFESSIONAL RODEO ASSOCIATION
1950 - The Oregon Rodeo Association was formed.
1956 - The ORA changed it's name to the Northwest Rodeo Association
1968 - The NRA was incorporated and improved its business operations.
1978 - The NRA joined the North American Rodeo Commission, a group formed by regional rodeo associations from across the United States.
1979, 1980, 1981 - The NRA sent a team of contestants to Calgary, Alberta, Canada for the World Cup Championship Rodeo. "Team Northwest" was runner-up in '79. In both '80 and '81 the team, then called the Northwest Volcanoes, won the NARC World Cup Championship title. The team concept finals at Calgary only lasted for three years, but Northwest cowboys and cowgirls made their mark proving that there are no better rodeo athletes in the world than what you'll see right here in the Great Northwest!
1984 - A new rodeo entry method was born. "Dial-A-Rodeo", a computerized central entry system revolutionized the way contestants entered rodeos. Breakaway roping was added as an optional event this year as well.
1989 - The NRA officially changed its name to the Northwest Professional Rodeo Association.
1997 - The NPRA moved its year-end Championship Finals to the Linn County Fairgrounds in Albany, OR. This new indoor facility enabled the NPRA to host a first-class Championship Finals Rodeo with great success. The "NW Pro Rodeo Roundup" became the official newspaper for the NPRA.
