One of the big questions we have had is will there be a rodeo in 2021. Many were heartbroken to see the 2020 rodeo cancelled due to the pandemic. We had already gotten notification that the 2021 San DIego County Fair had cancelled all of the entertainment contracts, and the Stagecoach music festival had cancelled for 2021. What about the rodeo?
As of today (2/23), the plan is to have a rodeo this year. Normally the rodeo is held the last weekend of March. This year it is scheduled to take place the last weekend of August 27th, 28th, and 29th. Tickets will go on sale at a later date.
We considered it an absolute joy to be with you the last few years at Lakeside Rodeo. In 2019, the rodeo board decided to offer the radio station sponsorship for 2020 to a local rock station. It would have been the first year we would have been absent from the rodeo in many years. We hope that they will reconsider letting us be a part of the rodeo in 2021.
