RodeoHouston announces 2021 cook-off dates!

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houston, get ready to rodeo!

We now know the dates for next year's Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo and cook-off!

The weekend of Feb. 25 through Feb. 27, Rodeo goers will be able to enjoy live music and all the delicious BBQ entered in the World's Championship Bar-B-Que Contest.

Not only were new dates announced, but the board of directors also announced their new leadership.

Dr. Chris Boleman was named the new CEO/President of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo after Joel Cowley said he was departing last month.

The 2021 rodeo will start on March 2 and run through March 21. The announcement of the new dates come months after the rodeo was forced to cancel this year due to the coronavirus, just days after opening.

Since its beginning in 1932, the Rodeo has committed more than $500 million to the youth of Texas and Education.
