Isa Rodeo Limited Chief Executive Officer Natalie Flecker said preparations are well underway for next week’s Mount Isa Mines Rodeo and tomorrow night’s Bell & Moir Rodeo Arena Ball.

With the Mount Isa City Council’s decision to cancel next Wednesday’s Street Parade, Ms Flecker wanted to reassure locals and visitors to Mount Isa that this year’s event, will be delivered under a managed Covid Safe Event Plan that has been approved by Queensland Health and the State Government. 

“It’s a challenging time for events across the country, but the Isa Rodeo Executive Team and Board have worked tirelessly to ensure not only with this year be another iconic event in the red dirt arena, but one that is a leader in covid safe event practices,” she said. “We have worked hard to ensure that we will create a safe but fun environment for all our visitors, staff, judges and competitors.”

Tickets are still on sale and accommodation is available, including the Mount Isa Mines  onsite Tent City.

“The Mount Isa Mines Rodeo is Mount Isa’s only major event and is an important community fundraising platform. The Mount Isa Mines Rodeo is expected to inject more than $10 million into the local economy.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone to Buchanan Park from Thursday to Sunday, August 12 to 15.
