The Horse Heaven Round-Up Rodeo would not be possible without this amazing group of volunteers. Their vision and determination have made the HHRU the Columbia River Circuit's Large Rodeo of the Year.
The Benton Franklin Fair Association was founded in 1948. The fair association is a non-profit public charity that produces the fair and rodeo each year. The group's mission is "to provide a quality event for the community in a safe and comfortable environment. The event will promote public education related to our agricultural heritage, seek quality family-oriented entertainment and activities, encourage youth and community participation and promote commercial opportunities recognizing the vast cultural diversity of our community."
That's a tall order to fill and the fair association is proud to have accomplished that mission for more than 69 years.
