2015 California Rodeo Hall of Fame Nomination Form

Hall of Fame information

The California Rodeo's Hall of Fame continues to grow.

The California Rodeo Salinas started its Hall of Fame in 2010 as part of the centennial anniversary of this annual western event. The Rodeo has long been supported by loyal volunteers who work on over 60 committees during the event, personnel, contestants and performers whose talents enhance the show, and after 100 years of business it was past time to honor those who helped build the organization and elevate the California Rodeo to one of the top 20 professional rodeos in the United States and the largest in California.

Since 2010, the California Rodeo has accepted applications each year and individuals have been nominated in the following categories: Committee Members, Performers, Livestock, Contestants, Notables, Supporters/Contributors & Staff.

How can you support the Hall of Fame?

The Hall of Fame committee will host several fundraisers throughout the year to raise capital to purchase plaques for all of the inductees from 2010-2014. The Wall of Fame was built to house these plaques via a generous donation from the Gheen Family in 2014. Now we need to fill the wall of up with a permanent nod to all the legendary members of our Hall of Fame. Read below for more information about fundraisers and events to attend or donate by visiting this page: WALL OF FAME and scroll down to the donate button.
