There will be no Falkland Stampede for a second consecutive year.
“Although the current state of this pandemic is moving in a positive direction, the expected provincial health orders come August will not allow for a large-scale event such as the stampede to occur,” organizers said earlier this month on Facebook.
The event is one of the oldest rodeos in B.C. and typically runs during the Victoria Day long weekend in May.
It was postponed in 2020 to dates in August and eventually cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, marking the first time in more than 100 years there was no stampede in Falkland.
“The Falkland Community Association has exhausted all avenues and it is in the best interest of all that we postpone the stampede to May 2022,” organizers wrote on Facebook.
