The very name Cheyenne conjures up images of cowboys, rodeos and trains around the world. Today's Cheyenne is all of that and more. From the world's largest outdoor rodeo and Western celebration to world class mountain biking, climbing, and camping, a visit to Cheyenne offers great opportunities. Come for our events, experience our museums and take home new memories.
Since 1897, Cheyenne has celebrated its Old West roots with this eye-popping festival. The centerpiece of this Western celebration is the world's largest outdoor rodeo, which draws top professionals who compete for more than $1 million in cash and prizes. Complementing the daily rodeo action are behind-the-chutes tours, trick riding and a wild-horse race. A Native American Village, an old frontier town, a saloon, dancing, a chuck wagon cook-off, pancake breakfasts and an art show carry through the frontier theme. Rounding out the program are a carnival midway, an air show, top-name entertainment, professional bull riding shows and several parades that include antique carriages and automobiles. Cheyenne Frontier Days takes place each summer during the last full week in July.
