JACKSON, Wyo. – It has been a waiting game for organizers of the local rodeo as they have attempted to stage their popular events while complying with health order restrictions.
WW Productions announced it will go ahead with the Jackson Hole Rodeo this summer after getting approval for a county variance that will allow up to 600 fans to attend the events with proper spacing and other mitigating factors in place.
The Wilsons had hoped to get the season rolling on June 17 but that date will not be possible as a mad scramble is on just to figure out how things will go in the new order. Saturday, June 20, is now the first scheduled event for JH Rodeo 2020.
“We have a lot of work to do before the 20th but we can’t wait to see you at the rodeo,” said Phil Wilson.
WW productions is adjusting online advanced ticketing to reflect the new limited capacity changes and social distancing measures. Meanwhile, the roughstock is more than ready to go and Wilson says he expects to have some of the best cowboys and cowgirls in the Mountain West competing because so many other rodeos have been canceled.
The rodeo schedule will follow the usual format—Wednesday and Saturday nights. Friday nights will be added beginning with July 3. The rodeo is on hiatus from July 19-28 for the Teton County Fair, then resumes Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays through September 12.
