Just two hours north of Rocky Mountain National Park, stop in Cheyenne, Wyo., on your way to Yellowstone. If you’ve timed it right, you’ll arrive in town for the World’s Largest Outdoor Rodeo and Western Celebration where top professionals compete for more than $1 million in cash and prizes. Celebrating its 125th year in 2021, Cheyenne Frontier Days offers more than daily rodeo action.
Order brisket, beans, potatoes and cobbler at the Chuckwagon Experience. Stop by Indian Village where Native Americans have been performing since 1898, returning each year to entertain and educate visitors about American Indian heritage and culture with dances, handicrafts and storytelling. Rounding out the festivities is a carnival with rides, an air show, top-name entertainment like Blake Shelton and Eric Church, Professional Bull Riders, and several parades that include antique carriages and automobiles.
This year’s dates are July 23- Aug. 1, 2021. Get up-to-date information and buy tickets at CFDRodeo.com.
