Rodeo Austin Cancels Public Events, Including Carnival and BBQ Austin Cook-Off, for March 2021
Part rodeo Austin Cancellations
The Rodeo Austin canceled all public events this year as well. These include the ProRodeo competitions, the fair (carnival, concerts, shopping district, stick shows) and the BBQ Austin (barbecue evening with petting zoo and fireworks components). The cancellation is also due to the fact that the Travis County Expo Center is being used as one of the Central Texas Food Bank’s distribution centers. The private events – Junior Livestock Show, Agricultural Mechanic Competition, Ultimate Scramble Championship and Youth Auction – will still take place in March. The entire Rodeo Austin was canceled last year. Similarly, RodeoHouston has canceled its public events next month but will continue to host private events.
