The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, a revered performance slot for country artists, has been canceled. The RODEOHOUSTON® competitions, concerts and entertainment, carnival, and other attractions and activities, were recently rescheduled for May 4 – 23, 2021, but were canceled due to the ongoing health situation.
The Junior Livestock and Horse Show competitions will still be held in March, as private events. While the Downtown Rodeo Parade, Trail Ride activities, Rodeo Uncorked! Roundup & Best Bites Competition, and the World’s Championship Bar-B-Que Contest, presented by Comcast Business, are canceled for 202; the Rodeo Run, presented by ConocoPhillips, will be held in a virtual format, with details to be announced once available.
“While we were optimistic that moving our Rodeo to May would provide a better opportunity to host our annual community event that Rodeo fans have come to love and expect, unfortunately, it has become evident that the current health situation has not improved to the degree necessary to host our event,” said Chris Boleman, president and CEO of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. “While this is an extremely heartbreaking decision for our Rodeo volunteers and the larger Rodeo community, we believe this decision is in the best interest of the health and well-being of our community.”
Dates and information for the 2022 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo will be announced at a later date.
