RENO, Nev. (April 19, 2021) – The Reno Rodeo announces its commitment to holding the Reno Rodeo, June 17-26, at full capacity. This follows Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak’s recently announced goal of having every county in the state reopen to 100 percent capacity by the start of June, as well as productive meetings with City of Reno and Washoe County officials.

“We remain fully committed to holding a safe rodeo, first and foremost,” said George Combs, general manager of the Reno Rodeo. “We have all been hard at work planning for the 2021 rodeo with some uncertainty around social distancing requirements. With these recent developments, we are confident that we can put on a safe event at full capacity while providing fans the exhilarating experience the Reno Rodeo is known for.”

In the coming weeks, Reno Rodeo officials will be formalizing health and safety guidelines for staff, volunteers, competitors and attendees, including any mask mandates that may be in effect. More details about onsite policies and updates will be announced at a later date.

The Reno Rodeo is the longest-running, biggest, annual professional sports event in the area. The nationally televised event is one of the top 5 regular-season rodeos in terms of prize money sanctioned by the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and has an annual economic impact on the region of more than $50 million.

“We’re grateful to the city, county and state officials who recognize that the Reno Rodeo — like our region’s many signature events — is an important part of the fabric of our community,” said Combs. “We feel a great deal of responsibility being the first major event out of the gate in 2021, but we’re also incredibly proud and excited to be able to give folks something to look forward to and we know we won’t disappoint them.”
