Cheyenne Frontier Days


It’s no wonder why they call Cheyenne Frontier Days the Daddy of ‘em all!  We had the most amazing time at Frontier Days experiencing for ourselves what it meant to be cowgirls.  Everywhere we turned there was something new to discover and we learned SO MUCH about western culture!  We started our visit with a behind the chutes tour so we could learn as much as possible about the rodeo. Watching the cowboys on the bulls and bucking broncos was thrilling.  We cheered for the riders with the other folks in the stands and were amazed by how long they could hang on while riding!  We also had the honor of meeting the Governor and First Lady of Wyoming, truly one of the nicest couples I have ever met.  We can’t wait to go back again.


It was AWESOME and I highly recommend getting as close to the guide as possible so you can ask questions.  I think the girls found it fun to meet some young cowboys their age who get to actually work during the week long festival.  They were the real deal.  Other highlights included dancing with Native Americans in the Indian Village during the friendship dance, the FREE pancake breakfast provided by the Kiwanis Club of Cheyenne, the Chuckwagon Cookout competition and, of course, the rodeo itself.


We did a lot of research for the show! Though we couldn’t visit every destination, we did want to show you what else we found.

Some would say that the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens is the Daddy of ‘em all when it comes to horticulture!  Located just across the street from where the Cheyenne Frontier Days are held, the Botanic Gardens are open 365 days a year during daylight hours.  The kids will particularly enjoy the Paul Smith Children’s Village designed with children in mind.  There is a sensory garden, a tipi village, interactive landscapes and even a puppet theater.  Note that the Children’s Village is closed on Mondays.
