Cheyenne Frontier Days is the “Daddy of ’em all.”
The capitol city, Cheyenne, brings the western spirit to life during the 10 day outdoor rodeo, Cheyenne Frontier Days during July. It was founded in 1897 and was operated by the community until the late 80’s when it formed its own organization with dedicated staff to keep the tradition alive. The festivities are still planned and organized by community volunteers. This is a community gem because it is truly a community effort.
Located right off I-25 and North of 8th Ave, the rodeo grounds are home to the livestock, cowboys, carnival rides and exhibitors. The outdoor arena features rodeo during the day time and then evenings they have concerts featuring world-class artists.
Any and all generations can get involved, every person can be exposed to the western experience and the rodeo is truly a defining cultural element celebrating the heritage of Cheyenne. Therefore it is more than a rodeo, it is a part of what makes the community unique.
