Embrace your inner cowpoke! Celebrate California Rodeo Salinas on July 21-24 by roping in great deals at GCC

Salinas Rodeo

California Rodeo Salinas began in 1911 as the Wild West Show held at an old racetrack, with local cowboys and cowgirls riding bucking horses. It lasted for a week, ushering in the nickname “Big Week” that is still used today. Through the years the rodeo has grown in stature and popularity. It is now a major stop on the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association circuit and was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame in 2008.

The California Rodeo and it’s related “Big Week” events are put on by more than 1,400 volunteers through the California Rodeo Association. The event not only has a huge economic impact on local businesses, but also benefits local nonprofits through donations, and gives Salinas a sense of pride and identity.

Goodwill Central Coast relates to that mission and the idea of connectivity within a community. Every donation and purchase helps strengthen our neighborhoods by empowering people to work, providing resources, and preserving our beautiful Central Coast landscape.
