Website Experiencing Technical Difficulties — Results and Photos Coming Soon

We are currently experiencing some technical difficulties with our website and photo management system. We apologize for any inconveniences this may cause. We will be posting the results and the pictures from the first rodeo of the season as soon as the problem is resolved.

We are so excited to welcome you back to the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo. Our first rodeo back after the pandemic was a packed house of eager fans watching a fantastic night of exciting rodeo action, visiting with friends, partaking of some wonderful refreshments, and returning to a longed for normalcy. Without you… rodeo fans, contestants, volunteers and sponsors this would not be possible. We look forward to 11 more weeks of fun filled action. See you at the rodeo ….Small Town Rodeo, Big Time Fun!!
