What is Cheyenne Frontier Days?

Cheyenne Frontier Days, often referred to as the "Daddy of 'em All," is the world's largest outdoor rodeo and western celebration and began more than a century ago in 1897.

One hundred twenty-six years later, Cheyenne Frontier Days is a 10-day festival of rip-roarin' excitement, featuring the world's best PRCA rodeo action and loads of western entertainment. In fact, even once named Cheyenne Frontier Days as the top festival in the nation in their annual Top 10 Summer Festivals.

Cheyenne Frontier Days includes PRCA rodeo and slack events, concerts, Professional Bull Riders, USAF Thunderbirds, parades, pancake breakfasts, a western art show and sale, carnival, Old West Museum, and an Indian village.

The 126th annual Cheyenne Frontier Days takes place from Friday, July 22, through Sunday, July 31, 2022, in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

The parades alternate with the Frontier Days Pancake Breakfasts which happened on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings of CFD week (July 26, 28, 30) at the Cheyenne Depot Plaza.
