Come celebrate World Giraffe Day at the zoo. 

World Giraffe Day is an annual event started by the Giraffe Conservation Foundation as a way to celebrate the longest-necked animal on the longest day or night (depending on which hemisphere you call home) of the year every year!

It's a great reason to celebrate these tall, beautiful animals, as well as an excuse to support them and create awareness about the challenges they face in the wild. 

Spend today at the zoo as we mark the occasion along with schools, nonprofits, conservation organizations and other zoos around the globe. Help us raise awareness and support for giraffes, and learn what small actions humans can take to help them thrive. 

World Giraffe Day at the Oregon Zoo will feature keeper talks, giraffe-based activities, crafts, tattoos, photo ops and other fun stuff. Come learn about the world's tallest animal on the longest day of the year.

The Ellensburg Rodeo is one of the “old rodeos” and has earned its place as one of America’s Top 10 professional rodeos.  The Ellensburg Rodeo also hosts the World Finale of PRCA’s Xtreme Bulls Tour. Started in 1923 with the same volunteer spirit that still “fuels the fire” of today’s volunteers, the rodeo has grown from a local competition among ranch hands to the Professional event of today with over 600 contestants and prize money in excess of $400,000!

Today’s best riders, ropers, and wrestlers compete in what many consider to be the best rodeo arena in the nation. The Friday night opening performance starts in the evening and ends under the stars. The Saturday and Sunday afternoon “perfs” feel electrically charged by the brilliant blue sky. It all leads up to the Labor Day Monday Championship Finals… the best of the best dueling in the dirt!
