The event will also be extended to a full-day celebration, beginning at 10 a.m. with an expanded festival leading up to the annual rodeo which in addition to traditional events and riders.

“This decision was not made lightly. There were many meetings and conversations about the possibility of changing the date and how that would impact others, such as alumni, donors and staff,” said Richard Nedelkoff, President and CEO of Boys Ranch.

“It is my hope that the day of Rodeo is one of great celebration for all involved.”
