Get ready! Oregon Republican Party’s 2023 State Convention is coming!

Republicans around the state will gather in mid-October in Pendleton, Oregon, to meet with fellow conservatives for training, exchanging ideas, learning about grassroots activism and campaigning, and so much more. This convention promises to be an exciting and educational event for all.

Here’s a preview of what you’ll experience at this exciting event:


  • Vendor Booths—These booths will feature campaign materials, political literature, merchandise, local and national businesses and organizations, and more. This is a great opportunity to learn about new initiatives, to collect resources and make connections, and to support these businesses and organizations that align with our Republican values.


  • Thursday and Friday Training Seminars—Learn from political experts on a range of topics including candidate training and effective campaign management, grassroots activism, practical techniques for canvassing and making voter contact, ways to develop powerful messaging, and more.


  • Thursday Night “Taste of Umatilla County” Welcome Reception—Kick off the 2023 State Convention in style! Thursday night’s Welcome Reception promises an evening of refreshments and great conversation while you mingle with fellow conservatives. Join us October 19th to meet our candidates and engage with Republican friends, party officials, and dedicated Republican volunteers from across Oregon. You won’t want to miss this festive start to a momentous weekend!


  • Buffet Lunches—Join us each day of the State Convention for a buffet lunch, guest speaker, and stimulating conversation. These luncheons are an excellent opportunity to fuel up, gain new insights, and engage in meaningful discussions.


  • Platform Caucus Break-Out Sessions—On October 20th, convention Delegates will meet throughout the day in individual break-out work sessions to hammer out details of the planks of our Oregon Republican Party Platform.


  • Friday night BBQ—Don’t miss our Friday night BBQ! The fun rolls out October 20, with a night of good food, dancing, and mechanical pig riding. Enjoy an evening with like-minded friends, candidates, and party volunteers from across the state.


  • State Platform Convention—This is the heart of the weekend meeting where the work gets done. During this meeting, Convention Delegates will vote on proposals from the work sessions to define and sharpen the Party’s Platform. Convention attendees will have the opportunity to watch how it all takes place.
