Logandale, NV –
The Clark County Fair and Rodeo announced late last week, after a 2 year hiatus, the annual event is back on and will happen. The Clark County Fair and Rodeo Executive Director Todd Robison confidently stated, “We are 100% all in!”
The annual event which is one of the biggest events for Southern Nevada has been cancelled the last two years due to the mandates and rules regarding Covid-19 which were put in place by the government entities of Clark County and the State of Nevada such as the Southern Nevada Health District and Governor Steve Sisolak.
“We are being cautiously optimistic, but as far as we are concerned, life needs to move on and we are all in,” continued Robison.
The Clark County Fair and Rodeo is scheduled this year for Wednesday, April 6th – Sunday, April 10th.
“The format will be the same, but we will have new and different entertainment and of course the big rodeo will be ready to put on a great show for everyone,” said Robison.
The Rodeo will be happening every night Wednesday through Sunday and actual PRCA (Pro Rodeo Cowboy Association) Rodeo Event so there will be some of the top Cowboy and Cowgirl athletes in the world competing. They average around 500 such athletes attending every year for the rodeo, contending for over $200,000 in prize money. The last held rodeo in 2019 winners included such celebs as Tie-Down Champion Tuf Cooper, Bareback Champion Austin Foss, and Bull Riding & All-Around Champ (as well as current NFR All-Around Cowboy World Champion) Stetson Wright. The rodeo also will be on national television through the Cowboy Channel and RFD-TV.
The rodeo starts at 7:00 pm every night except Sunday where it starts at 6:00 pm. The cost ranges according to purchase for the fair, carnival, and rodeo or any combination of those admission tickets. The fair and rodeo entry tickets range $25-$30 for walk-up.
“We are just happy to be back open and anxious to see everyone enjoying the fair again. We have been very disappointed last couple of years,” added Clark County Fair and Rodeo Manager Kevin Willard. “So happy to be back and going!”
As for entertainment, they acts are still being finalized but expect some of the most current entertainment acts to be present as well as local dance and performance groups performing. In the past, they have had the Chicago Boyz Acrobatic Team from America’s Got Talent, Tyzen: Comedy Hypnotist, Jeremiah Johnson: Juggling Act, Uptown Funk: Bruno Mars Tribute Band, Rock Bottom Boys, The Alley Cats, Michael Griffin: Escape Artist, DSB: Journey Tribute Band, Tim Gabrielson: Comedy Magician, The Lost Boys, and multiple country music stars.
The animal exhibits will be back, with the small animals, the livestock, and the 4H/FFA programs will be going again with the livestock shows and auctions.
“It is going to be a huge comeback for us,” said Willard.
Most likely there still will be Covid-19 Mandates in place, which the CCF&R plans on abiding by. “We will do whatever Covid mandates that are applicable will be in place, but we are more determined on making this the best year yet for the Clark County Fair and Rodeo,” said Robison.
“The staff and people are not backing down and doing everything we can to make this experience this year a good one for everyone, including easier options for vendors, attendees, and participants, which includes online options for registration and everything they need to do to make sure this year goes over bigger and better,” said Todd Robison. “So come on out and live life again!”
