in the heart of the Pacific Northwest nestled at the base of Mt.
Adams(12,276) is the small community of Glenwood . Glenwood, Wa is the
home of the “Ketchum Kalf” rodeo. The first rodeo was held in 1914 under
the name of “Mt Adams Cattle Association”. It was first held at the old
Conboy Place (around were the Lazy Dazy S is today). It was held on July
4th and was used as entertainment for the CAMAS PRAIRIE AND VICINITY
PIONEER ASSOCIATION. In the beginning it was held in an open field
without chutes, corrals or grandstands. The horses and cattle were
supplied by the local farmers and ranchers, The cowboys were the locals!
In 1937 the rodeo was moved to the Bert Lane Place(right behind
what is now the Post Office), where it was still a bunch of farmers and
ranchers having fun in a field!! In 1941 it was moved to its present
day site just west of Glenwood. The land was donated to the Glenwood
Rodeo Association by Pete Conboy. In 1943 the name was changed to the
“Ketchum Kalf” rodeo.
