CHEYENNE – Cheyenne Frontier Days, the famous 10-day outdoor rodeo event, has been held every year since 1897. But as the coronavirus continues to spread across the United States, that streak could be in jeopardy.

The “Daddy of ’em All” is still slated to begin July 17, yet that could change. CFD officials will be monitoring the decisions of other rodeos scheduled for May and June to determine their best course of action. In the meantime, event organizers have paused ticket advertising for the entire month of April.
