Cattlemen’s Days Sponsorship Opportunities

Cattlemen’s Days sponsorship time is here! We appreciate your continued support and want to say Thank You! Without our local sponsors, this event would not be possible!

If you’re interested in putting an ad in the rodeo program book, please submit your ad copy by June 2, 2023. We offer the option to have your business website or email linked from the Cattlemen’s Days website for year-round advertising. Please indicate your preference on the return agreement.

If you are interested in becoming a donor for TETWP or a sponsor of the TETWP Songwriter Shuffle, please contact Heidi Sherratt at 970-209-6332 or visit www.gunnisontetwp.com.
