What Makes the Hell on Wheels Rodeo Different From Other Rodeos?

The Hell on Wheels Rodeo and Chuck Wagon Dinner Series is back for its fourth season, featuring an open rodeo format. This means that anyone can participate in nine different rodeo events by paying the entry fee. In 2022, the season offered a generous payout of over $52,000 to all the cowboys and cowgirls who competed. This year, the season will conclude at the September 8th event and will return again in the summer of 2024. Scroll down to save the dates for next year!

The rodeo includes all of the same events that fans are familiar with but they are enjoyed with a small-town feel! Kids can often feel included in the event with a calf scramble or you can upgrade your ticket to include a behind-the-scenes tour of the rodeo.

The Chuck Wagon Dinner

Another aspect that makes the Hell on Wheels Rodeo so special is the fact that Visit Cheyenne brings in a nationally renown Chuck Wagon outfit. This means they bring the wagon and Dutch oven cooking for an experience you won’t soon forget. There isn’t anywhere else in the West where you can experience a true Chuck Wagon Dinner followed by a rodeo.
