We are deeply saddened to announce the cancelation of the 2020 Days of the Old West Rodeo.
The Sawtooth Rangers and City of Hailey had to make the unhappy decision to cancel this years Days of the Old West Rodeo. This will be the first year since 1947 that this tradition isn’t carried out in Hailey’s Werthheimer Park. We are saddened by this reality, but took this action together in the best interest of the public and in care of our community.
The Days of the Old West Rodeo is more than a spectator sport. It represents the rugged tradition of essential workers from times past and present. It displays remarkable skills. It is a venue for families and friends to enjoy an annual celebration of their heritage, their mentors, their teachers and their families. It’s a way to tell a story far more eloquently than words, books, movies, or even photographs can do. It is an experience that we have been, and will continue to be, proud to bring to Hailey. But not this year.
We will continue the tradition of honoring our Royalty and are sorting out the details of how the ceremony will take place. Please stay safe and stay connected.
