The Toppenish Rodeo is usually held during the 4th of July weekend but this year due to the coronavirus outbreak, the rodeo is being canceled for 2020.

The Toppenish Rodeo posted on their Facebook page this announcement:

The Toppenish Rodeo and Livestock Association Board of Directors is sad to announce the cancellation of the 2020 Toppenish Rodeo that was to be held on July 3rd and 4th due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The Directors have looked at this situation from all angles and feel this decision is in the best interest of our community, sponsors, contractors, contestants, volunteers, and spectators to stay safe and healthy. We know, the decision to cancel our event, as well as the decisions of the other committees who have canceled their events, creates a hardship on those in the rodeo world who depend on our rodeos for part of their livelihood.

Because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, our rodeo grounds have now been closed until further notice to any upcoming events that had been scheduled.
Plans are already in the works for Rodeo 2021 and any Gift Certificates that were purchased or donated will be honored next year.

We will survive this. We are rodeo strong!

The good news is that the Toppenish Rodeo is coming back in 2021. You can check out more details on the Toppenish Rodeo Facebook page here
