Cheyenne Frontier Days to hold 125th festival at full capacity — The Know

 

Cheyenne Frontier Days announced plans to hold its 125th festival at full capacity with no mask requirement this summer.

Wyoming Gov. Mark Gordon and Cheyenne Mayor Patrick Collins held a news conference at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Event Center to make the announcement Wednesday. The festival is scheduled to return to Frontier Park from July 23 to Aug. 1.

Organizers do not expect any attendance limitations for concerts, rodeo or other Cheyenne Frontier Days (CFD) outdoor events.

With guidance from the governor’s office and public health officials, they say they are prepared to implement COVID-19 procedures for cleanliness and sanitation and will make adjustments as health and safety circumstances dictate.

In 2020, the world’s largest outdoor rodeo was canceled for the first time in its 124 year history because of the pandemic.

Hundreds of thousands of people typically attend every year, contributing $28 million to the local economy, according to a release from CFD. In 2019, Cheyenne Frontier Days created over 300 jobs resulting in $5 million in wages and salaries and generated over $1 million in local and state taxes.
