2020 Three Forks Rodeo Postponed

Category: Uncategorized

In a decision of the Three Forks City Council on Tuesday, June 9th, the 2020 Three Forks Rodeo scheduled for July 17th & 18th has been postponed to August due to uncertainty of when the State of Montana will enter Phase 3 of our pandemic recovery.

The Rodeo Arena Board of Advisors determined that the State of Montana would need to be in Phase 3 in order to put on an event the size of the Annual Rodeo. With so much uncertainty around when that transition would take place, the Rodeo Board offered up alternative dates of August 28-29 should the July dates still be in Phase 2.

After much deliberation, the Council decided it was in the best interest of the community to postpone the Annual Rodeo to the August dates at this time.  Council members felt the uncertainty of when the State might transition to Phase 3 was a barrier to proper planning for the businesses most affected by the ancillary events associated with the Rodeo and postponing now will provide the entire community time to plan.

The Rodeo Arena Board of Advisors appreciates all of the input and support received from the community in preparing a presentation to the Council.  The Board hopes the community will continue to support this endeavor as planning for an August 28-29 Rodeo begins.
