How many 2020 Wyoming rodeos have been canceled?

A total of six rodeos throughout the state have been canceled, including the Sheridan WYO Rodeo, Cheyenne Frontier Days, Thermopolis Cowboy Rendezvous, Cody Stampede, Central Wyoming Fair & PRCA Rodeo in Casper and Laramie Jubilee Days.

Who made the decision to cancel and why now?

The decision was made collectively and unanimously by six Wyoming rodeo event committees, in consultation with state and local health officials as well as the Governor’s Office. Given the scope and scale of these western celebrations, many contract personnel, volunteers, and rodeo contestants are involved. With numerous deadlines at hand this was the latest possible week for a decision.

What were the key factors in deciding to cancel?

Our number one priority is the safety of our guests. There are just too many unknowns at this point with COVID-19, leaving us with few options. Social distancing guidelines and plans were explored thoroughly, but logistics beyond just ingress and egress proved too hard to overcome. For example, how do beer and food sales work or a carnival or a parade? We could not implement a strategy that would not destroy our event experience or endanger the health and safety of our communities, guests, and participants.

Is the Sheridan WYO Rodeo issuing refunds and how quickly will that happen?

The WYO Rodeo is offering 2020 ticket purchasers two options: A full refund or the ability to donate all or part of their purchase to the rodeo. All online ticket purchasers will receive an email from E-Tix within five days with more information. If you purchased with a cash or check, a WYO Rodeo board member will be in touch within seven business days to help with refunds and donations. If you have any questions at all, call E-Tix at 1-919-653-0443 OR 1-800-514-3849. For local help, please call Zane Garstad at (307) 751-0121 or email sheridanwyorodeo@gmail.com.

Can I roll over my ticket purchase to the WYO Rodeo for next year?

While this option was considered, the Sheridan WYO Rodeo Board felt it could create complications in 2021.

Will we have any Sheridan WYO Rodeo Week Events this year?

The rodeo was cancelled because it is just too risky for our friends and neighbors to host large outdoor events with little ability for social distancing. Since most Rodeo Week events are in the same category, the Sheridan WYO Rodeo will not be able to host these events this year. Specifically, the main street parade, Pow Wow, boot kick off and carnival will not occur this summer.

Will the 2021 WYO Rodeo happen?

God willing! Our hope is that by 2021 COVID-19 will be contained, and health and safety factors will be manageable for large gatherings. Ultimately, our patrons need to feel safe and secure. We will continue to work closely with the State and our local communities to promote our events for 2021. We are already thinking about how to make the 2021 Sheridan WYO Rodeo the best one yet!
