Carbondale Wild West Rodeo in the Post Independent

The Glenwood Springs Post Independent featured an article on May 30, about the first rodeo of the season. We are glad the community is excited as we are about the start of rodeo season and the new additions to the Gus Darien Arena. It is our lucky 13th year and we are so happy and proud to be a part of the community with such superb sponsors, fans, contestants, and volunteers. It wouldn’t be possible without you. You all rock!! Here’s to the best season yet.

Take a look at the article which talks about our new roof on one grandstand, new announcers stand and the picnic pavilion.
