CFD

Cheyenne Frontier Days (CFD) 2023 is finally here!  Boy, how time does fly!  Frederick W. Angier, named the father of frontier in 1917, began this event in 1896.  Frederick was a Pacific Railroad Agent who greatly shaped the creative direction of this event.

CFD was started after a Potato Day Celebration in Greeley, CO when Colonel E.A. Slack asked Warren Richardson if Cheyenne could put together an event.  The idea stuck and here we are!

Timelines:

Very early days - Parade

1960 - Indian VIllage

1966 - Live Music

PBR - founded 1992

PBR Competition Team - 2022

CFD is 100% volunteer-run with the enitre Cheyenne community coming together to make this happen every year for ten straight days.  From pancake breakfasts, to parades, to medical services, to horses ridden in parades, to concerts/CFD Nights, to rodeos, and many other events, there is a deep seeded love that runs through the community every year at this time.  This is what keeps people coming back year after year to enjoy our lovely town.

If you are needing any information on events, amazing places to visit, or just want an experience, please reach out.  Being a Cheyenne Tourism Ambassador, I can direct you to whatever you would like to see.  Here is a link for the schedule, too:
