The 125th Daddy of 'em All has ridden off into the sunset and the record books.  Cheyenne Frontier Days said 267,369 rodeo and night concert tickets were sold, setting a new record, and rivaling the 100th anniversary back in 1996.

Cheyenne Frontier Days always creates great memories, whether it is watching incredible performances in the rodeo, seeing larger than life performers on stage at the night shows, or taking in the parades, carnival, pancake breakfasts, and other events.

Cheyenne Post photographer Matt Idler shared some his memories of the 2021 Cheyenne Frontier Days with a series of photographs.

Women's Breakaway Roping is a relatively new event at Cheyenne Frontier Days.  It's similar to Men's Tie-Down, but the women do not have to dismount and tie the calf.
