Thank you Queen Jesse for all that you have done and will continue to do for our fair and rodeo!

Happy New Year’s Eve to everyone who may see this. I’m hoping the year 2020 brings blessings to everyone and new adventures. I’m sure everyone knows my 2019 was full of adventures and lots of memories, it’s been quite the year! It’s crazy to think that this time last year I was excited for all that would come, but I really had no idea it would go this fast. Of course I’m sad to say goodbye but I’m grateful for the memories, the friends, the horses, the rodeo committee, my family, and all the community members that cheered me on and believed in me. Thank you to Kristi Schrock for believing in me and Jenny Freeborn for lending me an amazing horse and being there to cheer me on. As a child, I dreamed of becoming a rodeo queen. Because of your support that dream became a reality. I hope I made my hometown and community proud.
Thank you everyone,
Sincerely,
Your 2019 Benton Co. Fair & Rodeo Queen
Jesse Nordyke

Name a more iconic father-daughter duo than Sterling Grant and Rebekah Grant putting on a clinic in the cowhide races at the rodeo this year!

The Grant Family's farm store Out West Farm & Ranch, located just down the road in Philomath, is a loyal sponsor to the Benton County Fair & Rodeo and they even sponsored these cow hide races!

Located in the beautiful Willamette Valley, west of the Oregon State University campus, the Benton County Fair and Rodeo is proud to offer this great, family-oriented opportunity the first weekend in August! This year, “Make a Splash” with our stingray touch tank, first ever Larry Bell All Girls Memorial Rodeo (Wednesday), two nights of Northwest Professional Rodeo Association action (Thursday and Friday) and the livestock shows happening throughout the entire week.

Concerts every night for the entry cost of your ticket, we are excited to bring opener Briana Renae for Love & Theft on Wednesday night, Rob Garrett (Neil Diamond Tribute) opening for Dreams; The Ultimate Fleetwood Mac Tribute band on Thursday night, the Willamette Valley’s own Fate 55 opening for Micky Dolenz of the Monkees on Friday night and then Trevor Tagle opening for Uncle Kracker Saturday night! Purchasing your tickets ahead of time will ensure that you can skip the lines at the ticket window and head straight for the law to reserve your spot for the concert!

Traveling entertainment throughout the fair include a hypnotist, trick roping, frisbee tricks, stilt walkers and more! Check out the Oak Grove stage for even more fun and exciting competitions and talent shows, as well as the karaoke competition!

My name is Carrie Bell, I am Larry Bell's granddaughter and I must say that I was extremely disappointed with the fair and the all girls rodeo. My grandfather should be recognized a lot more for his years of service
