"Once again, we have found ourselves faced with uncertainty surrounding live events like Rodeo All-Star Weekend," said a statement from organizers. "Together with event management, we evaluate the current state of this global pandemic, the government guidelines, restrictions, and our continued commitment to ensuring the health and safety of rodeo fans, contestants, and event staff. With all things considered, we have decided not to host Rodeo All-Star Weekend in 2021."
Organizers added they are "busy planning the pro rodeo events and country concerts with all-star talent, all-star competition, and all-star excitement" for 2022.
Individual ticket buyers or weekend passholders who purchased 2020 tickets and have not requested a refund can receive credit toward the 2022 event, donate your tickets to Rodeo All-Star or receive a full refund.
Ticketholders can email their request to firstname.lastname@example.org or call the National Western office at 303-295-6124 and leave a message.
