So, let’s talk about all the activities and events that makes the Cheyenne Frontier Days so special. First and foremost, this festival is located in the beautiful state of Wyoming, with mountain vistas topped with snow and blue skies stretching from horizon to horizon. Wyoming has sunsets, landscapes and natural wonders like nowhere else in the world. What better place to have a rodeo?! On top of its stellar location and beautiful scenery, this rodeo offers 9 days of action-packed events. These events include bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, bull riding, steer wrestling, tie down roping, team roping, barrel racing, and wild horse racing. Although the rodeo is the main draw, Frontier Days offers so much more than just that.
In addition to the huge rodeo, there is a carnival midway that offers thrilling rides, delicious fair food, and games that everyone will enjoy. Frontier Nights is the big concert that takes place every night with some of the biggest names in musical entertainment, such as Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw, Lady Antebellum, and more! If visitors want to take a step into the past, they can visit the Old Frontier town! Here, there is a petting zoo, exhibits, educational experiences, and games offered. Another popular attraction is the Indian Village, where visitors can immerse themselves in authentic Native American Culture with costumes, dancing, storytelling, and music. There are a number of Native American exhibit booths and food vendors here, as well. The fun doesn’t stop there! The big Grand Parade is one of the most popular events.
