Why sponsor the Rodeo?
Updated May 18, 2018--- We are closing in on the 2018 rodeo season.The CWWRA board has spent countless hours since the 2017 finals rodeo planning for a great 2018 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 2018 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Event Sponsorships Are Going Fast; however, we do have a need for more sponsors! The deadline to sponsor in 2018 is extended for any remaining available sponsorships.
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.
Dear Prospective Sponsor,
On behalf of the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Association, we would like to sincerely thank you for your interest in becoming a sponsor. Sponsors play a very important part in the success of our rodeo season, as most individual rodeos are a money-losing proposition. The funds from sponsors help to bridge that gap. Without sponsors, we do not have a rodeo.
In return for your support, we would like to let you know the value and benefit of being a sponsor of the rodeo. Sponsoring the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo is an effective and affordable to way to reach your customers in the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond. With a sponsorship you get weekly exposure during the Rodeo to an average attendance of 1,000 spectators who are residents and visitors of our valley. In addition, your signs will be viewed at multiple arena events throughout the year and by thousands of motorists who pass by on County Road 100.
Please see the attached sheet for the different levels of sponsorship. Not all of these levels may be available, as we offer our existing sponsors the right of first refusal. Please contact Mike Kennedy (contact information is listed below) to determine if the sponsorship level that you are interested is available.
2018 Sponsorship Level Benefits include:
• Visibility to 15,000 plus attendees during the season, which is every Thursday night, starting on the first Thursday in June and runs for 12 consecutive weeks

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 2018 rodeo season.
