2020 CALGARY STAMPEDE CANCELLED - WPCA SUPPORTS DECISION

The health and safety of horses and humans is and always will be the number one priority for the World Professional Chuckwagon Association. 

This afternoon the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede officially announced the cancellation of the 2020 Calgary Stampede. The World Professional Chuckwagon Association (WPCA) fully supports this announcement.

The WPCA is committed to supporting the Alberta Health Services and the Alberta Governments restrictions to ensure the general public, fans, sponsors, staff and volunteers are protected and their health and safety are the number one priority.

The World Professional Chuckwagon Association works closely with all venues on the WPCA Pro Tour. While the cancellation of the Calgary Stampede and the four WPCA Tour events previously announced has a negative financial impact on the communities where events are held, we will not jeopardize the safety of horses and humans.

WPCA drivers collectively own over 1,000 thoroughbred horses that require year round care. Revenues generated from chuckwagon racing events assist with caring for these equine athletes. The WPCA will continue to evaluate what financial options are available during these challenging times to assist with the care these horses deserve .

The WPCA supports the Alberta Health Services and Alberta Government with their restrictions going forward and in consultation with our host committees, we will determine if events scheduled later in 2020 can be held.
