The Canadian Finals Rodeo Postponed Until 2021

|

“It is with heavy hearts that we announce that we’ve made the difficult yet important decision to postpone this year’s Canadian Finals Rodeo until 2021.” stated CFR Red Deer in a Facebook post this morning.

In partnership with Canadian Professional Rodeo AssociationWesterner Park, and the Red Deer & District Chamber of Commerce the decision was made due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 related health guidelines and the cancellation of many qualifying rodeos this summer.

“We feel the standard of excellence and quality of experience that our fans and competitors expect from us would not be achievable this year.”

CFR is a national championship rodeo, originally planned to run November 3 – 8th, 2020. The world-class rodeo consistently attracts the best contestants and stock in the land and over 43,000 attendees. This six-day event contributes an economic impact of approximately 37 million dollars. Albertans, Canadians, and international visitors gather to watch over 100 of the world’s best rodeo athletes compete in the final event of the Canadian Professional Rodeo Association season.

“We are already looking toward 2021, building upon the momentum we gained in with CFR46 and will ensure Canada’s premier rodeo event comes back better than ever!”
