HAPPY CANYON PAGEANT AND WILD WEST SHOW DESIGNATED AN OREGON HERITAGE TRADITION

Happy Canyon Pageant and Wild West Show, a community cultural event accompanying the Pendleton Round-Up, marks its 100th year with an Oregon Heritage Tradition designation by the Oregon Heritage Commission.

Other Oregon Heritage Traditions include the Oregon State Fair, the Pendleton Round-Up, the Klamath Basin Potato Festival and the Linn County Pioneer Picnic.

The pageant takes place September 14 through 17 in Pendleton. A banner will presented Friday evening before the show.

“The designation recognizes those traditions that have helped define the state,” said Eric Martin, the commission’s chair.  “This event truly celebrates what is local heritage in Oregon.”

This event began as a way to entertain Pendleton Round-Up fans in the evening. It started as just a wild-west show, but in 1916 the show was scripted to include the Tribal portion. The founders portrayed the Cayuse, Umatilla and Walla Walla cultures for all the world to see. This show was a distinct opportunity to demonstrate for the non‐Indian audience a way of life they couldn’t learn about anywhere else‐‐with local Tribal people presenting their own culture and history.

The show continues to share the local history and culture with thousands in its performances and through participation in community events throughout the year.

"To receive this designation is such an honor for Happy Canyon." said Happy Canyon President JJ Spriet. "We have to thank the visionaries, Roy Raley and Anna Minthorn Wannassay, who wrote our show, and the thousands of volunteers who have made it happen since 1916." Spriet said.

An Oregon Heritage Tradition must have been in continuous operation for more than 50 years, demonstrate a public profile and reputation that distinguishes it from more routine events, and add to the livability and identity of the state. A list of Tradition designations is available at http://www.oregon.gov/oprd/HCD/OHC/pages/oht.aspx.
