As of July 22, 2021 the annual White Mountain Apache Tribal Fair & Rodeo has been cancelled pursuant to Tribal Resolution No. 07-2021-133 passed by the Tribal Council of the White Mountain Apache Tribe per EOC.

The cancelation is due in part to low vaccination percentages amongst the White Mountain Apache Tribal residence and increasing cases of the Delta variant on the reservation and region.

The White Mountain Apache Tribal Fair & Rodeo office will be issuing refunds for all online rodeo entries, mail-in entries, walk-in entries and vendor payments. Due to the high volume of rodeo entries this process may take anywhere from 3-4 weeks to return to you. We would appreciate your patience during this time. The WMAT Fair and Rodeo Office Staff and Commissioners would like to encourage you to please get vaccinated, continue with all safety protocols and mandates. The more people we can get vaccinated; the sooner we can return to some sense of normalcy.

Please check back on our Facebook page or website for more information as it becomes available.

Thank you,
