Fort Worth Stock Show Rodeo Is Canceled

The Fort Worth Stock Show  Rodeo is canceled for its 2021 season due to the
ongoing coronavirus pandemic, organizers said Friday morning. The decision to
cancel came with a unanimous vote from the executive committee. The annual event
draws a daily crowd that can exceed 140,000 from across Texas and the United States
— which means it would rank as a “very high risk” for the spread of COVID-19, said Stock Show President and General Manager, Brad Barnes. The stock show and
rodeo had been scheduled for Jan. 15 through Feb. 6, 2021. The only other time a
Stock Show was canceled was 1943, near the height of World War II
