"Every video or picture I see or story I hear about kids going to their first riding lesson, or kids asking me if they can volunteer next year. I stop and think we are doing something really great here. Its bigger than the event we produce - its rippling down into our youth and keeping western heritage alive!"
Erik Martin, Gilroy Rodeo President
Coronavirus & GIlroy Rodeo
As always, It is our goal to keep the health and safety of our competitors, attendees and volunteers at the top of our mind. We’ve been working diligently to navigate the COVID-19 Pandemic in a way that would allow us to gather this August. However, at this time we do not see a path forward for Gilroy Rodeo 2020 and have chosen to cancel all events for the year. This has been an enormously tough decision to make but we feel it is best to put the safety of the community first.
We promise to use this extra preparation time to put on an even better event next year and look forward to seeing you during the second weekend in August 2021!
