Organizers cancel the 2020 Cornyval in Helotes

In an offial letter posted to Facebook from the Helotes Festival Association, the 2020 Cornyval has been cancelled.

“I am deeply saddened to announce the cancelling of the Helotes Cornyval & PRCA Rodeo 2020 due to the Corona Virus.” said David Gray, HFA President. “It saddens me not to be able to help the venders and Local Nonprofits that rely on the money they make during Cornyval. It not only hurts them but also The Carnival contactor and all the Rodeo entertainment Contactors that haven’t been working. My heart goes out to all the Cowgirls and Cowboys that dedicate their lives to Rodeo. I pray that everyone stays healthy and survives the financial crisis of these time. See you at Helotes Cornyval 2021.”

The annual event was supposed to happen August 13th – 16, 2020.
