Updated March 13, 2022— Before you know it the 2022 rodeo season will be in full swing. We were so thankful for the 2021 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo season after the 2020 pandemic hiatus. The amazing fans showed up in droves and because of you our sponsors, the rodeo did not disappoint. Contestants, fans, volunteers and board members were blessed by the dedication of you, our sponsors in staying steadfast in your support of the CWWR. One of the main responsibilities of the board is acquiring sponsorships. The rodeo would not be possible without the generosity of our tremendous sponsors and you continue to come through.
As we see rising expenses in these continuing challenging times we live in we need your sponsorships more than ever. The deadline to sponsor in 2022 has been extended from our pre-pandemic April 30th deadline to May 10th for any remaining available sponsorships.
We are always excited as we plan for special acts, and our special rodeos such as TETWP, Hawaiian Night, and we always have special activities at the rodeo closest to the 4th. This year on June 30th. We continue to draw more spectators each year and if 2021’s record turnout has taught us anything, folks are ready to get back to enjoying life, family, friends and good old fashioned rodeo entertainment.
We will be updating any main events sponsorships if they are or do become available. Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Sponsorships are a great advertising opportunity that reaches a large audience for 12 weeks of the summer and all passing traffic year round.
Dear Prospective Sponsor
On behalf of the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Association, we would like to sincerely thank you for your interest in becoming a sponsor. Sponsors play a very important part in the success of our rodeo season, as most individual rodeos are a money-losing proposition. The funds from sponsors help to bridge that gap. Without sponsors, we do not have a rodeo.
In return for your support, we would like to let you know the value and benefit of being a sponsor of the rodeo. Sponsoring the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo is an effective and affordable to way to reach your customers in the Roaring Fork Valley and beyond. With a sponsorship you get weekly exposure during the Rodeo to an average attendance of 1,000 spectators who are residents and visitors of our valley. In addition, your signs will be viewed at multiple arena events throughout the year and by thousands of motorists who pass by on County Road 100.
Please see the attached sheet for the different levels of sponsorship. Not all of these levels may be available, as we offer our existing sponsors the right of first refusal. Please contact Mike Kennedy (contact information is listed below) to determine if the sponsorship level that you are interested is available.
Sponsorships sell out quickly, so please reach out as soon as possible to reserve your sponsorship. The deadline to sponsor this year is May 10, 2022.
Available are Premium Sponsorships, Chute and Return Gate Sponsors, General Sponsorships, and Friends of the Rodeo. Please see the attached sheet for the different levels of sponsorship (link at bottom of page). Not all of the Event Sponsorships may be available, as we offer our existing sponsors the right of first refusal. Also, a limited number of $650 and $750 level sponsorships are still available. These are all great opportunities to showcase your business in the valley, or to let the community know how much your family cares about continuing the great tradition of the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo. Please contact Mike Kennedy (the contact information is listed below) to determine if the sponsorship level that you are interested in is available.

The Carbondale Wild West Rodeo has enjoyed continued steady growth year after year. We are proud to once again bring you a “Small Town Rodeo, Big Time Fun!” However, without the help of sponsors we couldn’t offer the caliber of rodeo that our spectators and participants have come to enjoy year after year. Sponsors play a very important role by making it possible for the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo Association (CWWRA) to bring this very successful event to the Western Slope. We hope you will consider being a sponsor for the 2020 rodeo season.
