Premium Arena Fence ONLINE Parking Reservations

We’re thrilled to offer our premium arena-fence parking reservations again for the 2024 season!

With this ticket, you can park your vehicle directly by the arena fence for easy access and a prime view of the rodeo action. It’s perfect for a tailgate-style experience! 

Leaving your vehicle on Wednesday at the arena or on Willow Lane is no longer permitted.




  1. Tickets go on sale online here every Wednesday at noon starting on June 5, 2024.
  2. Each premium arena fence parking ticket allows one vehicle or trailer at the fence and one behind it. The second vehicle is for unloading supplies only and must not block others’ access.
  3. Once you’ve purchased your ticket, you’ll need to print out 2 confirmations — one for the primary vehicle and one for the accompanying vehicle. 
  4. Please display your receipt on the dashboards as confirmation.
  5. You may park your vehicle anytime after noon on Wednesday, once you’ve received your online parking reservation ticket. Parking spots are numbered and match your ticket SEAT number.  Please MAKE SURE you’re in the correct parking spot!
  6. Feel free to bring your tailgating food and setup, but please remember that bringing your own alcohol is NOT PERMITTED.



  • Cost: $50 with advance online purchase ONLY!
  • Tickets are non-refundable.
  • There are roughly 22 spots available, and many rodeo fans are eager to secure a spot.
  • Once all the spots are sold out, there are no additional spots available. If the website indicates sold out, they are indeed sold out. We kindly ask that you refrain from contacting us in an attempt to secure a spot.
  • This ticket is only for premium arena fence parking, not for entry to the rodeo. General entry and parking tickets can be bought at the gate or Roaring Fork Coop.
  • Parking spots are numbered and match your ticket SEAT number.
  • Check the Arena Parking Map to find your appropriate spot; some don’t fit trailers, and some are not directly on the fence but still offer a great view. 
  • Arena parking is a privilege, not a right; please be courteous to volunteers, participants, and spectators.

For more information about arena parking call Jashine, CWWRA Vice President at 970-618-4325.
