HOUSTON, TX — On Feb 3., it was announced that the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo will be canceled for 2021.

Thus, all competitions, concerts, and entertainment, carnival, and other attractions and activities will no longer take place on the rescheduled May - 23, 2021 run.

“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.

However, the Junior Livestock and Horse Show competitions will still be held in March, as a private event.
The Junior Market Auctions and Champion Wine Auction will also still be held in May, also as private events.

These events will follow all state and local health and safety guidelines.

According to their official website, dates and information for the 2022 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo will be announced once available.
