The Three Forks Rodeo announced on Wednesday that this year's rodeo is cancelled. Traditionally held in July, the rodeo had moved the event to August 28th & 29th hoping that Gallatin County would be in Phase 3 of the governor's COVID-19 directives.

The following statement was released by the Three Forks Rodeo:

With the unlikeliness of the state moving into Phase 3 prior to the rescheduled date of August 28th & 29th, the City Council of the City of Three Forks, the City Council of the City of Three Forks made a unanimous decision to cancel the 2020 Three Forks Rodeo.

In a fundraising effort to help offset the financial cost of the rodeo ground's new bleachers, the rodeo will launch an online raffle for a number of prizes, including a Henry Golden Boy .22 rife. More info on how to get a raffle ticket will be forthcoming.
