    If you’re looking for the most interesting events in the U.S. to attend, look no further. Every day, Gravy Analytics analyzes consumer attendances at over 1M events, large and small, across the U.S.

    This week we take a step back into the wild, wild west with Cheyenne’s Frontier Days: Since 1897, Cheyenne has celebrated its Old West roots with this eye-popping festival during the last full week of July. The annual walking of the steers – based on the cattle drives of the Old West – takes place the Sunday morning prior to Frontier Days’ official Friday kickoff.

    The centerpiece of Frontier Days is the world’s largest outdoor rodeo, with more bull riding, saddle and bareback bronco riding than any other rodeo in the U.S. Complementing the daily rodeo action are behind-the-chutes tours, trick riding demonstrations and a wild-horse race.

    Gravy verifies consumer attendances at more than 10MM places and 1MM events each day to deliver real-world consumer intelligence.

    Staying true to the frontier theme, visitors are also able to experience a replica Native American village and frontier town, including saloon, dancing, a chuck wagon cook-off, free pancake breakfast and an art show. While the majority of the events take place at Frontier Park, be sure to check the daily schedule as some events are held in different parts of the city.

    Rounding out the festival is a carnival midway, old west museum, an air show, several parades, and top-name entertainment, including Luke Bryan, Little Big Town and Sawyer Brown.
