Toppenish is known for two things. The city was named one of the "Prettiest Painted Places" in the United States for its outdoor murals, and the Toppenish Rodeo. In 1957, a fire destroyed the rodeo grounds. Then and now, the all-volunteer rodeo Board works diligently to build the grounds and the rodeo. With a lot of community support, the July event continues to improve each and every year.
