Carbondale Wild West Rodeo in the News

The community around Carbondale Wild West Rodeo are so thankful for each other… thankful for our fans, contestants, volunteers, photographers, rodeo secretary, announcer, timers, judges, bull fighters, rodeo clowns, specialty acts, Senior Matters, 4-H Club, RF High Volleyball, CWWR board, Town of Carbondale and employees, and the media who steps up and covers the action and the people of the rodeo. It truly does take a community of folks to pull the rodeo together and to make it a fun and successful event week after week.

We want to give a shout out to a couple of folks we truly appreciate for covering the rodeo in the local news. Thanks for spreading the word about “”Our Small Town Rodeo, Big Time Fun”.

Thank you Chelsea Self for covering the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo in the Post Independent. As one of your articles states — We are “A Close-knit Community at the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo”. We’re proud to have you as a part of our community. Here’s Chelsea’s most recent articles.

Paula Mayer, one of our Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Photographers, has been keeping CWWR in the news at the Sopris Sun. Thank you Paula for your love of the west and the people who bring their strength, grit and perseverance to all they do each and every day; and to make our rodeo into a community loved event.

Let’s rodeo!

¡Vámonos al rodeo!
