Like all cities, Cheyenne has seen its fair share of changes over the years, however, one element has remained a staple in the hearts of those who call Cheyenne home, a love of the wild west and its unmatchable sport, rodeo. 

Cheyenne Knows How To Rodeo

While the concept of rodeo remains the same wherever you go, Cheyenne is switching things up at the 2024 Hell on Wheels Rodeo and Chuck Wagon Dinner presented by Visit Cheyenne. Unique in their approach, Hell on Wheels presents an open rodeo format where anyone from the weekend warrior to the seasoned professional can pay the entry fee and compete in any of the 9 rodeo events.
