Washington’s oldest rodeo, the 109th Annual Alder Creek Pioneer Picnic, and Rodeo will be held June 12, 13, the 14th, 2020 at the Cleveland Park in Cleveland, WA.
Events and activities include RV dry camping ($20 for the weekend), carousel rides, Saturday night dance, good food, and an NPRA rodeo on Saturday and Sunday.
Get involved yourself and go for a ride on the carousel! It is a 1905 Herschell-Spillman and is said to be one of only three of its type still working. It was purchased from Portland’s Oaks Park in 1929 and brought to Bickleton. All of the horses are stored at the museum during the year and are only brought out for this one weekend. Age doesn’t matter to ride this classic! From newborns to great, great grandparents; anyone can ride! To enter local events call 509 896-5115 – June 4th and 5th from 7-9 p.m.
