Events, Attractions & Entertainment


Ever since the native peoples greeted and assisted Lewis & Clark near here, hospitality has been the tradition. More and more people are discovering what an adventure is waiting for them in Pendleton, whether they’re coming for a visit with family, to take in an event, or for a conference at one of the available facilities. With world-class museums, dining, antiques shopping, tours and events, visitors can plan on spending several days here. Then, of course, there are plenty of outdoor activities to include in an itinerary as well. In May 2011, Pendleton was ranked #8 in the Top 200 Towns for Sportsmen by Outdoor Life magazine. Open roads for motorcyclists and bicyclists. Birding along the Umatilla River Parkway through town. Big game and upland game bird hunting. Golfing. Stream and lake fishing. Hiking, mountain biking & four-wheeling. Snow sports in winter, and water fun in the big Columbia River in summer. Gathering the bounty of region in the form of mushrooms in spring and juicy huckleberries in the fall. Go to for a full calendar of community events to enjoy.


Pendleton’s legendary hospitality continues today in fine style. Over 1,000 rooms are available in an array of accommodations: bed and breakfasts, full-service hotels, resorts, full-service RV camps, and even a place for you AND your horse to stay!


Pendleton’s reputation for excellence permeates the community culture. Keystone RV is just one example of companies that consistently produce top quality products and provide great customer service as well.



Although Pendleton is known as a western heritage town, it has embraced and provides the newest in technology and is looking eagerly into the future. Because of the IT infrastructure, growing companies like Wtechlink (providing high-speed internet and telephone services) and Cayuse Technologies (an information technology company and call center) are based here. They have been joined by Damrei Web Development, Artifx Media Consulting and Traughber Productions.
