On Wednesday, the Amarillo Tri-State Exposition Executive Board of Directors announced that the 2020 Tri-State Fair has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We, as a board, would like nothing more than to feel that the thing to do is to hold the Fair without modifications,” said Virgil Bartlett, general manager, Tri-State Fair & Rodeo. “However, our current circumstance with public health do not allow for that to happen.”
Bartlett said the board has not made a final decision on the PRCA Rodeo.
“We have tabled the rodeo in hopes of having a better feel in the coming weeks for where we are with social distancing prior to setting a reserved-seating diagram in the Amarillo National Center and selling tickets for the rodeo,” said Bartlett.
