Fort Worth, TX – Officials with the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo announced Friday that the 2021 event has been canceled because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Here is the announcement on social media:
"Due to the ongoing threat of COVID-19 the 2021 Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo has been canceled. Consultations with infectious disease and public health professionals indicate the Stock Show would rank as a “very high risk” for the spread of COVID-19. This was a painful decision that was not made lightly.
Each show and competition represents what is unique and important for every participant and guest. Consequently, the decision was made to cancel all FWSSR events and features as opposed to allowing some to be held at the expense of others.
We know this decision is very disappointing to our loyal exhibitors, competitors, and guests. We share in your disappointment but pledge to do our part in the effort to defeat COVID-19 and be ready to host the best Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo in 2022."
