If you've come to Cheyenne, you've likely already heard about the cowboy culture--a western state, Union Pacific hub, Cheyenne Frontier Days and the Daddy of 'Em All, Fort Washakie, the Wind River Reservation, and more.
Just outside Portal 11 of Frontier Park lies the Old Frontier Town. If you weren't headed toward the northern end of the grounds, then you'd likely miss it. But with the authentic western wares, games and petting zoo for children, and a chance to meet folks from the chuck wagons, you'll want to make a stop.
Champion bull riders from around the world have been competing for a full year to qualify for the Championship Bull Riding event at Cheyenne Frontier Days. Day One on Monday, July 21 started the competition---with everyone hoping to win the grand prize $100,000.
The 16th annual Cowgirls of the West Brunch and Fashion Show offers a unique morning full of shopping, eating and catching up. All proceeds from the event benefit the local Cowgirls of the West Museum, as well as scholarships and events hosted throughout the year.

Think back to Superbowl XLVIII (in February of this year). Did you root for either the Seahawks or the Broncos? Now let's switch sports to the World Cup. Were you rooting for the USA, Argentina, Germany, or another country?
It never fails--each year during Cheyenne Frontier Days, the clouds roll in and the park grounds get drenched. And because this is Wyoming, where weather changes nearly instantly, there's also 90+ degree days with full sunshine.
Sure, once inside the Cheyenne Frontier Days gates, you'll be greeted with Dodge Ram trucks, the aroma of sizzling sausages and grilled peppers wafting from a nearby vendor, and cowboy gear---hats, boots, skirts, dresses.
But did you overlook the fun stuff that's right outside the gates?
I knew the Indian Village was open when I heard the flutes playing. A family moved closer to the center ring to sit on the carved benches. A handful of people were chosen to participate in a performance. And others wandered in and out of the shop fronts, looking at dream catchers, pots, turquoise jewelry and other wares.
