As the 2018 tourist season begins, CCVC is excited to have two new Visitor Services partners to assist in distributing visitor information throughout Carbon County. CCVC has expanded their current Visitor Services partners of the Valley Artisans (Baggs, WY) and the Rawlins Chamber of Commerce to include the Saratoga Platte Valley Chamber of Commerce and the Medicine Bow Museum.

Here in Carbon County, the travel, tourism and hospitality industry is celebrating the power of travel as part of National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW), slated for May 6 - 12, 2018.
Held annually in May, NTTW unites states, communities and businesses across the country to champion the impact of travel and what it means to American jobs and economic growth. In Wyoming, tourism is the state’s second-largest industry and is a major economic driver as travelers spent more than $3.5 billion in the state in 2017. Carbon County is kicking off NTTW on Monday, May 7th to highlight the importance of the industry on a local level with Governor Matt Mead honoring us as a guest server at Lollypops in Saratoga from 1:30-2:15PM. Be sure to stop by, join in the fun, have a scoop or two of ice cream, and talk tourism with our Governor.
Check out these local venues & events for some great music. Also make sure to check our calendar of events page for what's currently happening across the county.
