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, Contract Personnel/Performers, Livestock, Contestants, Notables and Supporters/Contributors.

Click on Hall of Fame Members to see a list of inductees by category.

The Hall of Fame Committee will review nominees and select inductees.

Chosen inductees will be honored during our Hall of Fame induction event tentatively scheduled for Thursday, September 23, 2021 from 11:30am to 1pm.

Inductions usually take place every 2 years, but were skipped in 2020.

Hall of Fame Nomination FORM

How can you support the Hall of Fame?

The Hall of Fame committee hosts fundraisers from time to time to raise money for plaques to permanently honor all Hall of Fame inductees.
The Wall of Fame was built to house these plaques via a generous donation from the Gheen Family in 2014. The cost of plaques for the 2011-2015 Hall of Fame classes was covered by a donation in memory of Past President George Richardson.

Special Thanks to Our All Around Grand Champion Sponsors
