Saddle Up Thursday

The Carbondale Rodeo Committee, a non-profit volunteer organization, is dedicated to preserving the western heritage of the Roaring Fork Valley. We achieve this by hosting the Carbondale Wild West Rodeo, a fun, family-friendly event for both residents and visitors. The rodeo takes place every Thursday from June to late August, regardless of the weather.


Visit the rodeo every Thursday from June 6th to August 22nd, 2024!

Gates open at 5:00 PM.

Enjoy free shuttles from The Orchard at 110 Snowmass Dr. between 6:00 PM and 10:00 PM on rodeo nights.

On-site parking costs $10 per vehicle.

See you there!


Carbondale Wild West Rodeo tickets can be purchased at the gate or in advance at the Roaring Fork Valley Coop in Carbondale. Individual tickets cost $15 each. A book of six tickets is available at the Roaring Fork Valley Coop for $75, saving you $2.50 per ticket.


The rodeo is held at the Gus Darien Riding Arena. County Road 100 (Catherine Store Road) Carbondale, CO 81623. Click Here to See a Map
