Public Announcement

It's time to start thinking about Round-Up business licensing! I would like to take this opportunity to notify you of the requirements for the City of Pendleton.

Round-Up will be held September 11th -16th. The Dress-Up parade will be a morning parade again this year and will start at 10 AM on Saturday, September 9th. The concert will also be on Saturday, September 9th starting at 7 PM. The PBR rodeo is held September 11th and 12th.

As in the past, merchants are responsible for finding their own booth location and making all of the necessary arrangements with the private property owner. No booths will be allowed on public property or public right-of-way except Main Street Cowboy's vendors. This includes City parks. Enclosed is a listing of businesses located near the Round-Up grounds. This listing is intended for informational purposes and does not include all property owners in that area of town.

The Round-Up license application form and brochure includes the fire prevention guidelines that must be met. Food handlers also need to contact the Umatilla County Environmental Health Department, 200 SE Third, Pendleton at (541) 278-6394 for guidelines on certified food handlers and temporary licensing. Please take a moment to review the various guidelines as the booths will be inspected for compliance. If you are unsure that the proper electrical connection and sufficient power for demand is available, please contact the property owner who you are renting space from as soon as possible.

When completing the application, please note that the business location refers to the Pendleton location where you will have your booth. All applicants are required to complete the Round-Up Business License (PDF). If this information is not provided, the business license cannot be processed.

The deadline for applications to be filed at City Hall is Thursday, August 31, 2017, at 5:00 PM. If you wish, you may fax your application to (541) 966-0352, Attn. Business Licensing; however, the application will not be processed until after the fee is paid. We will mail all licenses processed by the City before August 31st, unless you specifically request us to hold the license. Licenses processed after August 31, 2017, will be available at City Hall, 500 SW Dorion Ave. for pickup.

And last, as a reminder you may not use “Pendleton Round-Up”, ”Let’er Buck”, or the bucking horse logo without permission of The Round-Up Association because these are registered trademarks. Likewise, “Pendleton” may not be used by itself on clothing or accessory items because it is a registered trademark of Pendleton Woolen Mills. The use of “Pendleton, Oregon” or a similar geographic reference is not objectionable to either organization.
