Health and Safety at Cheyenne Frontier Days

At a news conference Wednesday (April 8) CFD CEO Tom Hirsig said that organizers will be taking precautions to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. The plan currently is for there to be no mask requirements, a full schedule of events, and no attendance limitations.

In a press release, CFD officials say they are working closely with the Wyoming Governor’s Office and public health officials. Adding that CFD is "prepared to implement COVID procedures for cleanliness and sanitation, and will make adjustments as health and safety circumstances dictate."

“We are excited to get back to fulfilling our mission of economic impact to the community, and we look forward to safely welcoming our fans back to Frontier Park this summer,” Cheyenne Frontier Days CEO Tom Hirsig said. “It’s been a difficult year for our volunteers, staff, and the entire community. We hope this news will bring some optimism that we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.”

Since the end of the 19th Century, Cheyenne Frontier Days have been held during the last full week in July. CFD includes the world’s largest outdoor rodeo with top professionals competing for more than $1 million in cash and prizes. The Frontier Nights concerts series features music superstars live in Cheyenne.

The celebration of western heritage also features the Native American Village, the old frontier town, free pancake breakfasts, an art show, a carnival midway, professional bull riding shows, and downtown parades with antique carriages and automobiles.
