Induction Weekend

2020 Induction Weekend Annoucement

July 2, 2020 – ProRodeo Hall of Fame & Museum of the American Cowboy

It is with great sadness that the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy announces today that the Class of 2020 Induction Ceremony and associated activities will be cancelled due to the extreme restrictions placed on events in Colorado from the COVID-19 pandemic. We are so sorry to have to make this decision as this was not the outcome we were hoping for.


Unfortunately, we would be unable to have the kind of numbers of attendees to truly honor the class as well as have the events be successful and worthy of the honor it is meant to be. Without the ability to have the entire families and many friends of the Inductees attend, we have made the decision to cancel and move the events to next year.


“We did not enter into this very difficult decision lightly,” said Kent Sturman, Director. “None of us wanted to make this decision but it is best under the circumstances.”


We will work diligently to plan a robust and successful event for this amazing class to be held in 2021. Watch for more details as decisions are made throughout the year.

Once a year, the ProRodeo Hall of Fame inducts a new class into the Hall of Fame. The Class of 2021 Induction Weekend will take place in Colorado Springs, Colorado. This annual weekend includes a golf tournament, cowboy ball, ceremony, and rodeo. This page will continue to be updated when information becomes available.
