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!
