The Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo is often termed the “Daddy of Em All,” and there is good reason for this. This PRCA Pro Rodeo has been a local tradition for Cheyenne, Wyoming residents since 1897, and it is known as the world’s largest rodeo event held outdoors. This year’s event brought together those of all ages for two weeks in July to enjoy a wide range of events and activities, and next year’s event will be held in Cheyenne, Wyoming from July 18 through July 31. Whether you are a cowboy or a cowgirl, you may be wondering what this PRCA Pro Rodeo event has to offer.
What to Expect at the Daddy of Em All
While the main highlights of the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo are the cowboy and cowgirl rodeo events, there is also much more to enjoy as well. The 2015 rodeo included trick-riding, behind-the-chutes tours, a wild horse race, a chuck wagon cook-off, a pancake breakfast, an old frontier town, a Native American village with the Ak-Chin Indian community, a saloon, dancing and more. There are even parades, live entertainment, a carnival midway, antique carriages and classic cars. This is an event in Cheyenne, Wyoming that has it all. Whether you are planning to attend next year’s rodeo with friends or with the whole family, this is an event that has something for everyone to love.
The PRCA Events
The Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo would not be called the Daddy of Em All without plenty of cowboy and cowgirl rodeo action as well. The Pro Rodeo events were televised on the Cowboy Lifestyle network, and there was more than $1 million in prize money given away. Some of the top winners in the PRCA events include Seth Hardwich in the bareback competition, Kyle Irwin in the steer wrestling competition, Scottie Knapp in the bull riding competition, Trevor Brazile in the team roping competition and Jesse Wright in the Saddle Bronc competition.
Now is the perfect time to start planning your trip to the next Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo schedule for the second half of July in 2016. Cheyenne is conveniently located close to Yellowstone National Park and the Grand Tetons National Park, and many who spend time at the Daddy of Em All will also take time to explore all that the rest of Wyoming has to offer as well. This is the perfect way to spend your next family vacation.
