What You Need To Know: CFD Pancake Breakfast
Cheyenne Frontier Days is all about traditions. One part is celebrating our western heritage. Another is the annual events that makeup CFD. From the rodeos to the concerts, parades, and pancakes!
A CFD favorite since 1952, the Pancake Breakfast is served-up for free in the Cheyenne Depot Plaza downtown. This year, the pancakes will be cooking on July 22, 24, 26 from 7:00 until 9:00 AM. The Cheyenne Kiwanis Club puts on the pancake breakfast with the help of the CFD Indian Committee and Cheyenne Boys and Girl Scouts.
And it's free. Plus you get to have breakfast with folks from all over.
In 2018 over 23,000 people attended the free pancake breakfasts. This year Frontier Days officials say that volunteers are expecting to serve about "100,000 flapjacks made from 5,000 pounds of pancake mix, cook-up 3,000 pounds of ham, serve 9,200 cartons of milk and 520 gallons of coffee, along with 630 pounds of butter and 475 gallons of syrup."
CFD says that the all-time Cheyenne Frontier Days Pancake Breakfast single-day record was set on a Wednesday in 1996 where 16,897 people were served. So, if you head downtown for breakfast there's a really good chance you will run into someone you know and make lots of new friends.
