Today, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo announced that the 2021 event, originally scheduled for March 2-21, will now be held May 4-23, pending the status of the pandemic.

The Junior Livestock and Horse Show competitions will still be held in March, as previously announced. But all of the pre-Rodeo happenings such as the Rodeo Run, Trail Ride and cookoff, will be moved to coincide with the big event in May. There are "no guarantees," the Rodeo said in a release issued this afternoon, but the organization believes that an additional two months' time will provide a better opportunity to host the events. HLSR expects to issue additional details about the schedule and safety guidelines by early March.

"The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is truly a community event that Rodeo fans look forward to each and every year," said Chris Boleman, Rodeo president and CEO, in a release. "With the evolving health situation, we have made the decision to move the 2021 Rodeo from March to May. … We remain dedicated to fulfilling our mission to support Texas youth and hosting a long-time Houston tradition."

Born on the Bayou by DUAL + J. Paul Jackson

A MASSIVE NEW exhibition up now at Foltz Fine Art (2143 Westheimer Rd.) showcases the vibrant works of two Houston artists whose art, although created through opposite means and levels of meticulousness, fuse together in a perfectly disparate union. A Sea of Green, on display through April 25, features nearly 90 works by Houston-based artists Jonathan Paul Jackson and DUAL that can be seen as opposite and apposing halves of the same boldly colored and exuberant vein of energy.
