Frontier Days Sets Record For Rodeo, Concert Ticket Sales

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The 2021 Cheyenne Frontier Days set records for rodeo and concert ticket sales.

The 10-day rodeo and Western culture festival ended Sunday with a final tally of 267,369 rodeo and concert ticket sales, KGAB Radio reported.

Sales for the 125th “Daddy of 'Em All” were up 14% compared to 2019. The 2020 event was canceled because of the coronavirus.

Both Saturday rodeos and two concerts headlined by Garth Brooks and Blake Shelton sold out.

Almost 15,000 people attended Sunday's rodeo finals, where reigning all-around champion Stetson Wright, a saddle bronc and bull rider from Milford, Utah, won again.
