Great outdoor rodeo and this year is the 125th.
So far Blake Shepton, and Eric Church are for sure. Word is Garth Brooks will be here too.

Great time to be in Wyoming. Just abut 1 1/2 hours to the Snowy Range for added fun.

Flew up to Casper last year to pick up a truck and stopped in Cheyenne just to see the Lane Frost statue. Would definitely like to see a rodeo there.

This is tempting to go back to again. We had a great time last trip there.

Thanks for the heads up, we missed out on it last year but might make a special trip this year and spend some time there.

Casper airport. Bought an F350 for a haul truck from a guy there. He was nice enough to meet me at the airport with it. We probably talked for an hour in the pick up lane. Luckily it's not as busy as our airport here.

Hotels will book fast, and raise rates during the rodeo.
I'll post the concert lineup tonight sometime.


July in Wyoming is pretty nice. Good chance of afternoon thunderstorms but cooler than Texas.
Lots of small town stuff happening all around the state. Jubilee Days in Laramie earlier in July; street dances , concerts, carnival, brew fest and farmers markets on Fridays.
Fishing is good that time of the year.

Bring a jacket if you come up.

The Daddy of ‘em All!

Good to hear it’s going to be back full capacity. Truly an amazing rodeo and experience. The best rodeo I’ve ever been to but I haven’t been to Calgary but I’d say Cheyenne is for sure the best or one of the best here in the states.

I grew up in Ft. Collins which is just a short drive from there. I have great memories of Cheyenne during rodeo weeks. I actually have seen cowboys ride horses into the bar there more than once. It was good to be young and the drinking-age be 19. Definitely should be on every ones bucket list if they love rodeo.

They usually have a rock act but not this year.

We go over every year for the Thunderbirds airshow and have made few concerts.
Get seats at least half way up on East side for rodeo, you want to be in the shade. Chutes are on East side and it is a big arena.
