Welcome to our web page. The Rodeo was originally started by Penn Valley Fire Department Corporation in 1956 to raise funds for the fire department which was the corporation. The rodeo event remained under the fire department till 1974, in 1995 when the association was disbanded by the community and the rodeo was turned over to the Penn Valley Hi-graders Lions Club.
In 2001 the Lions Club didn't want to put the rodeo on any more so the Penn Valley Firefighters Association took it over again and ran it until 2003.
After financial restrictions prevented the 47-year-old event from being held in 2004, a group of Penn Valley residents has organized an effort to bring the rodeo back in 2005.
Thus the Penn Valley Community Rodeo Association was formed, the event is on for this May 2012, we have a great Rodeo event schedule planned for this year. We hope you will join us and please support all or sponsors and let them know you appreciate their support of the community and the Rodeo. Without them, this year's rodeo would not have been possible.
