MINOT, N.D. – The 2020 Minot Y’s Men’s Rodeo scheduled for Oct. 9-11 at the North Dakota State Fair Center has been canceled due to COVID-19 restrictions, according to Ruth Nicolaus, a spokesperson for the rodeo.
The rodeo released the following statement on Facebook Monday:
“The Minot Y’s Men’s Rodeo, host to the Badlands Circuit Finals Rodeo, regrets to announce that the rodeo will not be put on by our organization this year. Restrictions related to Covid-19 have required the cancellation of the event. The Circuit is currently looking at other options for the rodeo to still take place. We appreciate the support of the venue, our sponsors, fans, and contestants as we navigate these uncertain times and put the health and safety of everyone involved at the forefront. We are working with the ticket company to provide refunds for those tickets already purchased. We look forward to seeing you at the 2021 Y’s Men’s Rodeo.”
The Y’s Men’s Rodeo, which has taken place in Minot for 65 years, raises funds to support the Triangle Y Camp in Garrison.
