Facts to Know —How to Pay for Your Rodeo Tickets

The Carbondale Wild West Rodeo does not accept debit or credit cards. Please bring cash or check to purchase your rodeo tickets at the gate or for purchasing in advance at the Roaring Fork Valley Co-op. Due to safety and time concerns we can only accept cash or checks at the rodeo gate. We do not have the capability to run credit or debit cards at the rodeo and we cannot have traffic backed up on the road waiting on a credit or debit card purchase to go through. We appreciate your understanding. We can’t wait to see you at the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo — Small Town Rodeo, Big Time Fun.
