Truly the Daddy of ’em All
Cheyenne’s world-class rodeo is truly the Daddy of ’em All. Known for its fast pace and large number of contestants, the CFD rodeo ensures that visitors see more rodeo action – two sections of bulls, and two sections of saddle and bareback broncs daily – than they can see at any other rodeo. Every rodeo event is performed in each of the nine daily performances, so any day at Cheyenne Frontier Days is a good day to see an exciting, action-packed rodeo.
The rodeo consists of track acts in a fast-paced display of athletics, heroics and good-natured fun.
Ultimately, the rodeo is about the people who make it great: the contestants, the announcers, the barrelman, and last but not least, the bullfighters.
All rodeos begin at 12:15 p.m. Be sure to get there early for the pre-shows at 11:30 a.m on each day!
Wild Horse Race
The Wild Horse Race is a thrilling rodeo event at which teams of cowboys compete to see which of them can be the first to saddle and ride one of the wild horses completely around the track. This event, full of thrills and action, is a perennial crowd favorite.
Dinner Bell Derby
The mares and colts run each day from Saturday to Saturday during the rodeo. This is a favorite of the attendees of CFD, and a great event to get the youngsters involved in the Daddy of ’em All – Cheyenne Frontier Days™!
