Hold On — It’s Time for the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo

Hold on — Everyone is getting excited about the start of the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo 13th Annual Season. June 1st marks the start of your summer rodeo fun! Come and join us! Don’t miss out! Every Thursday Rain or Shine. Slack at 5:30, Grand Entry at 7:30. We have a lot of new things going on at the CWWR. Be the first to sit under the covered roof and enjoy the picnic pavilion and the improved sound system. Our announcer and timers will no longer sway with the wind or suffer in the rain. We have a new announcers stand too!
