In the frontier west of a young United States, cowboys roamed the vast expanses of land as they tended cattle on the open prairie. After months out on the range, the cowboys returned to their ranches, sometimes partaking in friendly bucking horse competitions with other cowboys in the area.

On September 23, 1897, organizers harnessed the spirit of these impromptu matches of cowboy skill, and the “Daddy of ‘em All” was born. Since then, Cheyenne Frontier Days has been at the heart of the cowboy way of life.

When the sun goes down each night, the stars come out in the form of musical acts including the likes of Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, Jason Aldean and Little Big Town. Saddle up July 21-30, and see why the 121-year-old marvel continues to captivate audiences today.  Visit
