TICKET SCAM. Be Aware of Unauthorized Red Lodge Rodeo Ticket Site
The Red Lodge Home of Champions Rodeo is July 2 - 4th.
The popular holiday weekend draws thousands of fans to Carbon County for a fun weekend of rodeo, live music, fireworks, and mountain-town fun. If you're buying tickets to the rodeo and concert, please be aware of an unauthorized online ticket seller.
Multiple reports about a scam website.
We received an email the Shari DeSaveur, Marketing Director for the Red Lodge Home of Champions Rodeo on Tuesday, bringing attention to a website called TicketSmarter.com. I won't post the link, but this site is not legitimate. It's quite sketchy (notice the similarity to TicketMaster?) and most of the content was clearly written - poorly - by AI. DeSaveur said,
This site is not in any way affiliated with the Red Lodge Home of Champions Rodeo.
Don't get scammed!
There are three places to purchase authentic tickets:
- www.redlodgetickets.com This is the official, secure website for tickets online.
- Billings Kubota at 5548 Holiday Ave, Billings, MT 59101
- Red Lodge Chamber of Commerce at 601 Broadway Ave N, Red Lodge, MT 59068. Stop in or call 406-446-1718 to get tickets over the phone. You can pick them up at your convenience up to 90 minutes before the show. After that, they'll be at will-call at the Fairgrounds. Quite convenient.
