Rodeo Austin and the county leaders have announced the cancellation of the 82-year-old rodeo due to concerns about Coronavirus.

The Travis County Commissioner’s Court held a special meeting on Thursday to determine the best course of action. County officials weighed all options, including putting additional safety measures in place for Rodeo Austin and Luck Reunion before determining that it was in the best interest of the public to cancel the event.

Sarah Eckhardt, former Travis County judge spoke to KVUE saying these decisions are made to preserve public health and safety.

“We are trying to both manage the health emergency, as well as the economic emergency that is resulting from justifiable health concerns,” Eckhardt said during Tuesday’s meeting.
