Due to the continuing uncertainties brought forth as the result of the COVID-19 pandemic and concern for the general health and well-being of the community, the Flint Hills Beef Fest committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Flint Hills Beef Fest celebration scheduled August 20-23, 2020. This was a very difficult decision as we enjoy seeing our friends at the events in August. However, in the end, the committee members felt there would not be a way to hold this type of event in a manner that would assure safety and health for all.
The cattle contests are continuing. Although we wish we could say exactly what we plan for recognition this year, we are uncertain of the timeline to host any mass gatherings going forward. We sincerely hope the situation has improved to allow us to host the winter Feedlot and Carcass Awards Celebration in February 2021, but of course that will all depend on what happens in the coming weeks and months.
We look forward to having our annual Flint Hills Beef Fest activities again in August 2021.
Thanks to our Top 2019 Sponsors for making this event possible.
