Montrose County Fair Board Postpones Colorado Pro Rodeo
Montrose, CO— The Montrose County Fair Board voted to postpone the bull riding and Colorado Pro Rodeo (CPRA) originally scheduled for Friday, July 24 and Saturday, July 25 to Friday, August 28 and Saturday, August 29. The postponement stems from current guidelines state officials have implemented limiting outdoor event capacities to 175 attendees.
“We had hoped to be able to host both events on their original dates, however, with the limitation on ticket sales, we are unable to do so. We are hoping that in another 45 days, we will see another lifting of restrictions and will be able to host both events,” said Fair Board President Chris Cohick.
The Fair schedule has been modified to include only the Jr. Show and 4-H and FFA participants. Additionally, all events are limited to participants and their immediate families per the guidelines set by the Fair Board.
