Folsom Pro Rodeo postpones 60th anniversary due to COVID 19
Citing guidelines regarding measures aimed at protecting the public against COVID 19, the Greater Folsom Partnership has decided to postpone the Folsom Pro Rodeo and has tentatively moved it to the Labor Day weekend.
“The health and welfare of our fans is of the utmost importance to us,” said Joe Gagliardi, CEO of the Greater Folsom Partnership. “It is clear that by July 4th, our traditional time for the rodeo, there will still be cautionary measures in place regarding public gatherings.”
“We regret that we will not be able to honor the 60th year of the region’s favorite family event on July 4th. We hope to bring this celebration to our loyal fans over Labor Day weekend if possible,” Gagliardi said.
Area rodeo fans of the rodeo may still be able to enjoy a fun patriotic event. Gagliardi said the GFP is in the planning stages of a special July 4th tribute which will honor the holiday (as the rodeo has done for 60 years) , the resilience of our country and at the same time adhere to the social distance guidelines.
