Changes to Your 2023 CWWR You Need to Know Before You Go

Saddle up, ’cause the 2023 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo season is gonna be bigger and better than ever! After months of meeting with the Town of Carbondale, and local law enforcement, we have been required to make some changes to keep our Western heritage and the Carbondale Rodeo alive! It was a matter of making the changes, or don’t have the rodeo. We chose to HAVE the rodeo!!
