Wed, 11 Mar 2020 15:33:09 CDT

Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Cancelled Over Coronavirus Concerns The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo has been canceled as concerns grow over the coronavirus. According to the RodeoHouston web page, "In the interest of public health, the City of Houston and the Houston Health Department have ordered the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™ to close. The Rodeo will respectfully and dutifully comply with the City’s order."

Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner made the announcement Wednesday to shut down the annual event, which draws hundreds of thousands of visitors to the city.

"The Rodeo is deeply saddened; however, the safety and well-being of our guests and our community is our top priority," read a statement on the rodeo's website. "Out of precaution, the City has decided that this is the best course of action for our community."

The rodeo was scheduled to run through March 22 and was set to include performances by Lizzo, Dierks Bently, Keith Urban and other artists.

An announcement for ticket refunds is expected soon, the rodeo's website said Wednesday.
