The Museum’s Annual Carriage Balls Presents – CFD Glamour: 1920s Hollywood Races to CFD

Saturday, October 17, 2020

Join the Museum in celebrating the start of the 2020s as this year’s Carriage Ball transports you a century back in time. The 1920s saw some of the most spectacular Cheyenne Frontier
Days in the Western celebration’s 124 year history. By morning, the “world’s wildest woollyest wild west” cowboys and cowgirls dazzled record breaking rodeo crowds, and by evening,
Hollywood’s most glamorous stars became the all-around champions of Cheyenne’s nightlife.
Pauline Frederick, Tim McCoy, Will Rogers, Madame Ernestine Schumann-Heink, William S. Hart, Death Valley Scotty, Edna Ferber, Courtney Ryley Cooper, Dane Coolidge, and the
marvelous Mabel Strickland all graced the city during the decade. The stars of the Roaring Twenties were hosted by the likes of Cheyenne’s own recognizable socialites Dazee Bristol
and the Irwin daughters, Frances, Pauline, and Joella. In 2020, the socialites at the Old West Museum invite you to join us in celebrating the 1920s glamour of CFD and the Magic City of
the Plains.

  • Preferred Table of Eight – $1,250
  • Standard Table of Eight – $1,000
