Roots N Boots Queen Creek

Roots N Boots Queen Creek Cancelled for 2021

The Friends of Horseshoe Park Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to cancel Roots N’
Boots Queen Creek which was scheduled for March 2021. The board determined that it cannot
confidently overcome the difficulties of staging a large event with the uncertainties and ever-evolving
rules and guidelines associated with Covid-19. The board felt it had an obligation to the contestants, stock
contractor, sponsors, vendors, and contract personnel to make a decision now rather than wait until the
last minute.
Planning is already underway for Roots N’ Boots Queen Creek 2022, which will be held March 16-20,
2022.

During the coming year, Friends of Horseshoe Park and the Roots N’ Boots Queen Creek committee will
be exploring alternatives to continue their presence in the community, in person and over social media.
For instance, our Rodeo Royalty will continue to represent the Town of Queen Creek at various virtual,
community and state events. They also will continue to partner with Arizona Farm Bureau’s Ag In The
Classroom program to bring virtual rodeo presentations to local schools.
In spite of this cancellation, Roots n’ Boots will be releasing its second issue of the AgTivity Book in
March.

Friends of Horseshoe Park invites Roots N’ Boots Queen Creek supporters to send suggestions on
partnering with other organizations or community involvement ideas via email to
info@friendsofhorseshoepark.org.

Board President Jon Wootten said, “Our community and the Roots N’ Boots Queen Creek fans are very
important to us and we appreciate your support. On behalf of Friends of Horseshoe Park and the entire
Roots N’ Boots committee, I want to thank you for making Roots N’ Boots Queen Creek a world class
event.”
