The event began in 1935 and is produced by the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks Lodge #1468 with 100 percent of proceeds being donated to children, veteran and special need charities.

Helldorado Days offers a four-day pro rodeo, parade, carnival, whiskerino contest, poker tournament, golf tournament, art show and auction, trail ride, exhibits, food and more. The rodeo starts with a locals rodeo and continues with a three-day Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) rodeo.
