Premium Arena SIde ONLINE Parking Reservations

New for the 2023 season! Reserve your arena-side parking tickets in advance! 

We are excited to announce the introduction of our premium arena-side parking reservation system for the 2023 season!

This ticket will allow you to park your vehicle directly alongside the arena fence for easy access and a tailgate seat to all the rodeo action. Our premium arena side parking ticket is perfect for those looking for a more convenient way to enjoy the rodeo tailgate style! You can no longer leave your vehicle on Wednesday at the arena or on Willow Lane. Enjoy the convenience of knowing you’ve reserved your premium parking in advance!

With proof of purchasing a premium arena-side parking ticket, you may park one vehicle/trailer at the fence and one vehicle behind it.  The accompanying vehicle must not obstruct others’ access and is for unloading supplies for the main vehicle/trailer. Place the receipt in the dash for confirmation of the reservation. 

Please print your receipt for both primary and accompanying vehicle to show at the gate and place it in your dash for confirmation of reservation. 


Our premium arena-side parking tickets are available for purchase online every Wednesday starting at 12 pm. CLICK HERE to get your arena-side parking ticket today and join us for the 2023 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo! 

Please Note: This ticket DOES NOT grant you entry into the rodeo.  General entry and parking tickets are available for purchase at the gate or in advance at the Roaring Fork Coop. CLICK HERE for more info on general entry.
