FORT WORTH—The executive committee of the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo voted unanimously last week to cancel the 2021 show scheduled for Jan. 15 through Feb. 6.
“This is a heartbreaking decision for our leadership and was not made lightly,” said Stock Show President and General Manager Brad Barnes. “We wanted to find a way to safely hold a show for our 1.2 million guests, exhibitors and competitors.
“Unfortunately, the challenges we face to create practical and enforceable protocols and procedures to comply with COVID-19 guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are extremely daunting.
“The uncertainty of the virus potential spread across Texas and the nation during the upcoming flu season was another major factor weighing on our decision.”
