With the cancellation of the 2020 CCA Finals Rodeo due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is still Virtual rodeo-related fun October 14 – 17.
"This year we felt that although the Rodeo itself has been cancelled, we still wanted to maintain a presence in the community, so the decision was made to host a virtual event. Through this virtual event partners intend on thanking its many sponsors, competitors, volunteers and patrons for their continued support and for making the event a huge success over the last four years, while looking forward to collaborating with the entire Finals Family again to deliver the best CCA Finals Rodeo ever in 2021," explained Swift Current Ag and Ex said in a statement.
