Started in 1954, as one of the Rodeo Week activities, the first breakfast served about 700 people. By the late 1950’s, the breakfast had grown to over 1000 participants.

The Cowboys used equipment borrowed from many different sources, including the Sheriff’s Department, local churches, and some Redding residents. Breakfast goers often ate their pancakes and sausage on tables made from doors and saw horses “borrowed” from area lumber yards.

As the years went by the Cowboys found it necessary to acquire more and more of their own equipment as the breakfast had outgrown the reserve of donated equipment. Starting with tables, the Cowboys began a program of buying or building equipment. The Cowboys were able to purchase old McDonalds grills, as they were phased out of restaurants throughout northern California.

These griddles and many chairs and tables later, the undisputed largest outdoor community breakfast in the United States has grown to over 10,000 of our best friends sharing breakfast together rain or shine!!!
