Now available, a limited number of sponsorships for the 2012 Carbondale Wild West Rodeo season. Sponsoring the not-for-profit, volunteer driven Carbondale Rodeo is an effective and affordable way to reach customers in the Roaring Fork Valley. Sponsors get weekly exposure during the rodeo to an average of 750-1,000 people who are residents of and visitors to our valley. In addition, signs will be viewed at multiple arena events throughout the year and by thousands of motorists on County Road 100. Contact Dave Wiemer at 970-618-6824 or Mike Kennedy at 970 379-3907 for information.
