What's Is Cheyenne Frontier Days?

For over 125 years, Cheyenne Frontier Days has entertained folks in Wyoming, Colorado, and beyond. Obviously, the event has evolved greatly in that time and in 2023, it's one of the most popular summer festivals and rodeos in the entire world. Literally, people from all over the planet travel to Cheyenne, Wyoming, to experience the magic that is CFD.

Their concerts are phenomenal, and their award-winning rodeos are some of the absolute best in the world. You can shop, eat, drink, ride rides, play games, experience live shows and neat one-of-a-kind experiences like the Indian Village, and more. Cheyenne makes sure they have a little something for every single person who sets foot at Frontier Park. But, what is the very best part of Cheyenne Frontier Days?

In our Top 5 countdown, we talked about the carnival, the food, the rodeos, and the concerts... But the number one thing about Cheyenne Frontier Days is... The amazing volunteers! Did you know that almost every person you see working at Cheyenne Frontier Days is a volunteer? They have over 2,500 volunteers working year-round to put on the Daddy of 'em All each year... The event legit could not happen without these folks donating weeks of their time each year to help put this event on.

For years now, I usually get to be on the main stage introducing one of the shows, and I ALWAYS make sure the crowd gives it up and shows some love to the thousands of folks who make this event happen each and every year. I'm lucky enough to call many of these great folks my friends. CFD has created friendships for me that will last a lifetime, and I'm so thankful for that.

Next time you're at a Cheyenne event, make sure you show a little extra love and kindness to the folks you see around the park in the CFD gear, chances are they're away from their friends and family to ensure you have a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Thank you CFD volunteers! It literally wouldn't be the same without you. Cheers on another very successful Cheyenne Frontier Days! See the rest of our CFD Top 5 HERE...
