Great news for the Crook County Fairgrounds: the Northwest Professional Rodeo Association approved a three-year contract to hold the finals in Prineville. 

 

Fairgrounds Manager Casey Daly says having one of the rodeo community’s greatest events in their arena for three consecutive years will be a super boost to the community.  "It means us being able to showcase the community, showcase our fairgrounds, our facilities. It means economic boosts when the finals are happening here. So there's just a lot of positive going on with this win." 

 

Daly says thousands of people come to participate or watch the finals and that translates into an economic boom for merchants in Prineville and Central Oregon.  The Chamber of Commerce is planning to build an entire weekend of events that will surround the NPRA finals. 

 

This year the finals will be September 21st and 22nd.
