REDDING, Calif. – The Redding Rodeo Association announced Monday the cancellation of the 72nd annual Redding Rodeo, May 13 through May 16 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Redding Rodeo is a long-standing tradition for the community. The Redding Rodeo Association Board of Directors said this was not an easy decision to make.
For those who have already purchased tickets, an announcement will be made for ticket transfers for next year’s rodeo or a refund at a later date.
“Our hearts go out to all those now suffering from the virus and to the families who have lost loved ones,” the Redding Rodeo Association Board said in a press release. “We are also deeply grateful to those working on the front lines and risking their own health and safety to save others and to provide important essential services.”
