Oakdale is recognized as the “Cowboy Capital of the World,” commemorating our local ranchers and rodeo cowboys and cowgirls. Centrally located, Oakdale attracted many young “cowhands” in the 1950s and 1960s who worked on area ranches during the week and entered rodeo competitions on the weekends. Several of these cowboys won rodeo championship titles and brought home coveted awards and national acclaim to Oakdale. Together, these rodeo athletes earned more than 25 professional world championship titles and made countless trips to the National Finals Rodeo.
