Rescheduled

With the recent announcement from Gov. Ron DeSantis that all official travel for state employees has been suspended for 30 days, and his recommendation that large events be canceled in an effort to reduce the spread of the new coronavirus, it is with great regret that we announce the rescheduling of the 2020 Florida Triple Crown Roadeo until a future date. We are working with the hotel to find another date that is suitable for all parties, but do not have these details at the moment.

We hope to be able to communicate to you very soon when the event will be rescheduled. In the meantime, please make plans to cancel your attendance in April. If you made a hotel reservation DIRECTLY with the hotel, please cancel that reservation ASAP with the hotel at 800-204-7234. If your hotel room was being handled by FDOT, you do NOT need to do anything at this time.

No refunds will be given at this time, as we are rescheduling the event to later in the year.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Handbook

All Competitors and Judges are strongly encouraged to review the Roadeo Handbook prior to the event, as changes have been made in the update. The final 2019 handbook is available until the 2020 handbook is published.
