Taking place July 22-31, 2022 in Cheyenne, Wyoming, this is a bucket list rodeo that you aren’t going to want to miss. Cheyenne Frontier Days have a way of bringing the western culture to life with everything from Professional Bull Riding, daily PRCA rodeos, and nightly concerts performed by top-charting artists.
Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo
Cheyenne Frontier Days™, the 10-day event consists of three categories for competitions; Rough-Stock Events (bareback, saddle bronc, and bull riding), Timed Events (Team and Tie-down Roping, Steer Wrestling, and Barrel Racing), and Racing on the Track (Wild Horse Races). In addition to the rodeo, you can also find the Dinner Bell Derby take place, which is when 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™!
Professional Bull Riding
New this year, Cheyenne Frontier Days™ will be bringing a PBR Team Series event to the arena, taking place July 25-26 at 7:45 pm each night. This will be the inaugural season kick-off for the new series layout. This two-day event consists will build on the existing structure of professional bull riding with the same basic rules for judging and scoring qualified 8-second bull rides. The event will be a tournament-style format with all teams competing in head-to-head matchups against a different opponent each day. Each game will feature five riders per team squaring off against another team. The team with the highest aggregate score of qualified rides among its riders will be declared the winner of each game. The event winner will be the team with the most game wins across an event, with a special bonus round designed as a tie-breaker to determine the final event standings.
