What You'll Get
Rodeos are one of the few fads from the Wild West to continue in modern times, unlike robbing trains or tumbleweed tattoos. Enjoy anachronistic amusement with today’s Groupon: for $28, you get two C-stand rodeo tickets (a $32 value), Old West Museum admission for two (a $14 value), and one park-'n'-ride voucher (a $10 value) at Cheyenne Frontier Days in Cheyenne, Wyoming (a $56 total value). Today's Groupon is valid for single-day admission on July 25, 26, 27, or 28.
Cheyenne Frontier Days revives the rough-and-tumble pastimes of the Old West with a summer exhibition complete with outdoor rodeo, interactive reenactments, and a historical museum. Sidle up to the rodeo, where you can ogle from C-stand seats as wranglers defy gravity while maintaining their balance on bucking broncos and hovering horseshoes. From 12:45 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day, spectators can catch 10 rodeo events and three track acts that feature more than 40 bulls, 70 broncos, and a trio of trick riders. Daring bull jockeys will attempt to ride a 2,000-pound bull for at least eight seconds, with the good riders successfully holding on and the great riders composing a rhyming haiku to recite on dismount.
The Old West Museum displays a collection of artifacts portraying pioneer life and history, including 150 carriages and wagons originally used to transport kittens cross-country. Frontier Days visitors can seek breaks between events by wandering through saloons and square dancing in the Old West town, Wild Horse Gulch, or befriending off-duty bulls with a round of pin-the-tail-on-the-cowboy. Attendees can hitch their vehicles up in the park-'n'-ride lot and take a complimentary shuttle to the main rodeo grounds.
