Christian County Cattleman’s Lonestar Rodeo Postponed

The Christian County Cattleman’s Lonestar Rodeo has been postponed this year due to restrictions put in place because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Executive committee member Jerry Gilliam says the decision comes from much deliberation, however, the rodeo will at least be postponed past the original August date.

With the rodeo revenue providing scholarships through ticket and food sales, Gilliam adds it would be difficult to break-even with the current restrictions in place.

The current restriction set in place by Governor Beshear due to the COVID-19 pandemic only allows for 50% capacity which would not make the rodeo viable to create scholarships this year. Gilliam added that if the restrictions change, the rodeo could be rescheduled for a later date.
