Why sponsor the Rodeo?

Updated February 13, 2017--- We are closing in on the 2017 rodeo season.The CWWRA board has spent countless hours since the 2016 finals rodeo planning for a great 2017 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo season. One of the main responsibilities of the board is acquiring sponsorships. The rodeo would not be possible without the generosity of our tremendous sponsors. The 2017 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Event Sponsorships Are Going Fast; however, we do have a need for more sponsors!

We will be updating any main events sponsorships if and when they become available. Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Sponsorships are a great advertising opportunity that reaches a large audience for 12 weeks of the summer and all passing traffic year round.

Available are Premium Sponsorships, General Sponsorships, and Friends of the Rodeo. There are a limited number of Events Sponsorships remaining. Please see the attached sheet for the different levels of sponsorship (link at bottom of page). Not all of the Event Sponsorships may be available, as we offer our existing sponsors the right of first refusal. Please contact Mike Kennedy (the contact information is listed below) to determine if the sponsorship level that you are interested in is available.You can be the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Program Sponsor, also available are the ever popular Calf Scramble, Return Gate and Chute Sponsors. (Call Mike-- contact info below for more information.) Also, a limited number of $650 and $750 level sponsorships are still available. These are all great opportunities to showcase your business in the valley, or to let the community know how much your family cares about continuing the great tradition of the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo.

Call Mike Kennedy, CWWRA Board Pres. (970 379-3907) and Mike will help you to find the right sponsorship opportunity for you.

The Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Association (CWWRA) is a 501c3, volunteer organization committed to keeping the Roaring Fork Valley’s western heritage alive by offering a fun, family oriented rodeo. Along with the financial obligations of running the rodeo, CWWRA invests funds back into the rodeo facilities and contributes portions of gate monies to worthy organizations in the community. Your CWWRA board members are Pres. Mike Kennedy, V. Pres. vacant, Sec. Melanie Cardiff, and Treas. Tom Harrington.

The Carbondale Wild West Rodeo has enjoyed continued steady growth year after year. We are proud to once again bring you a “Small Town Rodeo, Big Time Fun!” However, without the help of sponsors we couldn’t offer the caliber of rodeo that our spectators and participants have come to enjoy year after year. Sponsors play a very important role by making it possible for the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Association (CWWRA) to bring this very successful event to the Western Slope. We hope you will consider being a sponsor for the 2016 rodeo season.
