Held the last full week of July, Cheyenne Frontier Days is a huge, 10-day western celebration. The event has been held since 1897 so that Cheyenne can celebrate its Old West roots.

In addition to the world-class Frontier Nights entertainment acts, the event offers the world's largest outdoor rodeo – which draws the top pros who compete for more than $1 million in prize money. A Frontier Days belt buckle is among the most coveted prizes in rodeo. 

After being canceled for the first time in its 124-year history, CFD returned in 2021 with a massive concert lineup that included the return of Garth Brooks, Kane Brown, Thomas Rhett, Cody Johnson, Maren Morrison, and Blake Shelton (with Gwen Stefani).

Frontier Days carried on through both world wars and the Great Depression, when tough finances prompted it to become a mostly volunteer-run festival of rodeo, music concerts, parades and other events.
