The non-profit organization had to cancel last year's event for the first time in its 82-year history shortly after the beginning of the pandemic.
This year's youth competitions will be conducted in compliance with state, county and city mandates to provide a COVID-19 safe experience for those involved. The event will be hosted in early March and more information is still yet to be announced.
The Travis County Expo Center and the Ludecke Arena has been the home of Rodeo Austin and the annual events in March for years, but is now being used for the distribution of essential items to community members in relation to COVID-19.
Rodeo Austin also announced organizers are working closely with public officials to determine which events can be rescheduled for alternative dates in 2021.

Vaccine week 13: Travis County to receive more than 75K doses of vaccine thanks to Johnson & Johnson bump
Eighty-seven providers in Travis County will receive a total of 75,540 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine for the week of March 8 as part of the 13th weekly allocation, a nearly 62% increase compared to last week's. The significant increase is largely due to inclusion of the new Johnson & Johnson vaccine, which received an emergency use authorization from the FDA last weekend.
The bulk will go to hub providers Austin Public Health and UT Health Austin, the clinical wing of Dell Medical School, as well as to Seton Medical Center, which will receive the largest share of this week's shipment. These three providers will either receive doses from Moderna or Pfizer.
