New Western themed market event coming to Douglas County fairgrounds


WATERVILLE - The Douglas County Fairgrounds is set to host a new event on June 1 and 2 called the Junk Rodeo -- Western Market. Despite its name, the event is not an actual rodeo but rather a unique shopping experience with a Western twist.

According to Carolyn Morley, the Fair Manager, the Junk Rodeo will feature a wide variety of vendors offering western-inspired goods, including boho, vintage, rustic, farmhouse, and repurposed items, as well as trendy fashion and more. The event aims to showcase local talent and businesses from across the state of Washington.

"This market has turned into an EXPERIENCE you will not want to miss," Morley stated in a press release. "With barns full of shopping, so many talented artisans + makers, plus good food, sips + sweets, and of course some fun cocktails and photo ops!"

The event organizers are excited to venture into this new event space and promise an enjoyable experience for all attendees. Over 50 vendors are expected to participate in the Junk Rodeo, which will take place in the barns of the Douglas County Fairgrounds.

Tickets for the event are priced at just $5, making it an affordable outing for those looking to enjoy a day of shopping and entertainment. More information about the Junk Rodeo -- Western Market can be found on the North Central Washington Fair's website at
