The Oldest Continuous Rodeo in the U.S. Needs Your Help
For the last 120 years, Gunnison, Colorado has been home to Cattlemen’s Days. In a normal year, Cattlemen’s is a weeklong July extravaganza featuring a carnival and many different competitions.
In 2020, of course, things are different. The event has been granted a variance to occur this year over Labor Day weekend (September 5-7, 2020) with a big difference from years past: no in-person audience. Instead, the 2020 Cattlemen’s Days PRCA rodeo will be broadcast on the Cowboy Channel for fans all over the country to watch. Staff and participants will strictly adhere to public health guidelines to ensure everyone’s safety.
No live audience means no ticket sales and no vendors, which usually provide revenue to cover operating expenses. This year, Cattlemen’s Days needs your help. To make a donation or become a sponsor, visit the Cattlemen’s GoFundMe page. Learn more about Cattlemen’s Days on their website.
