2021 RodeoHouston canceled


RodeoHouston, which was pushed back to May from its usual dates in March, has been canceled for 2021.

The Junior Livestock and Horse Show will still take place in March and the Junior Market Auctions and the Champion Wine Auction will still take place in May, but all other competitions, concerts, carnivals and additional attractions will be held this year.

“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.”

Boleman went on to say he was happy the rodeo could still uphold its mission to support Texas youth by committing over $21 million in 2021.
