Free contestant parking (including overnight trailer parking) is located in the northeast corner of the fairgrounds.  Follow the signs once you've entered the fairgrounds via Mount Jefferson Drive.


Secretary's office

Once parked in Contestant Parking, you may enter the First Interstate Bank Center to drop your rigging or gear in the locker room, but the Secretary's Office is on the opposite side of the arena.  You're better off entering the First Interstate Bank Center from the Northwest corner, checking in, then making your way to the locker rooms or behind the chutes.  See #1 in green in figure 1.



Stalls are available overnight Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  They are $25 each night and come with one bale of shavings.  Additional shavings are available for $5/each.  Please check in at the marked trailer at the horse barn labeled #3 in figure 1 above whether you have reserved online or not.  Questions about stalls?  This year (2023) please call Karen at (541) 815-9379

Shavings will be available for purchase on site.



Each night, contestants are welcome to join us in our Hospitality tent for dinner before or immediately as each performance starts.


Locker Rooms

On the opposite side of the First Interstate Bank Center, near the back doors, you'll find Men's and Women's locker rooms.  These doors are conveniently located near the entrance to the High Desert VIP Room and access to both the chutes and timed event end See #2 in figure 1.
