Cheyenne Frontier Days Cheyenne
Where are we going today?
Yee haw! It would be a shame to visit a place so amazing as Wyoming and not experience one of the classic elements of country culture - the Rodeo!
Cheyenne Frontier Days are 10 days of rodeo fun each year! Did you know that Cheyenne has actually celebrated this festival since all the way back in 1897? That's a lot of happy rodeo families!
Want to know something else impressive? It's actually the world's LARGEST outdoor rodeo! The riders are competing for an incredible prize, and it's always very captivating to see them do what they do best!
Throughout the days there are behind the scence tours, fun dancing you can be a part of, those iconic chuck wagon cook-offs, and even an old frontier town - and we haven't begun to scratch the surface!
Did we mention those pancake breakfasts or the North American Village?
It really is a true, frontier experience.
Along with all of those events, there is also a carnival midway, as well as an air show, and incredible entertainment for the events! From John Mellancamp, to Aerosmith and Keith Urban, they have some pretty big names playing! You never know - you might come away with a little one in the family now inspired to be a rock star or a cowgirl!
The location of the Cheyenne Frontier Days is pretty special too! You're surrounded by mountain vistas, and vast forest wilderness. It will give kids a glimpse of the true American West. Wyoming is, after all, where the myth of the cowboy was born!
Get those boots on and those hats dusted off - we're headed out to the frontier!

Always enjoy myself at this even, and to the poster below me.......CFD had not started yet when you posted, so, how are people supposed to take your words seriously?
If it is as serious as you claim, go to the media, good luck getting them to air your story.

This rodeo was awesome! All the contestants are the best of the best and give a great show. Parking is very easy if willing to pay the 10 bucks and if not there is lots of free parking nearby. Food is carnival food so its expensive but it is alright
