Cheyenne Frontier Days officially kicked off with the Grand Parade July 23, 2022, where many people came out to show their support.

The tradition of Airmen marching in the parade has been around for decades, representing the partnership between F.E. Warren and Cheyenne. These CFD events bring both the Cheyenne and military communities together in celebration of their partnership. 

The celebration includes horse and carriage, buggies, military vehicles, antique cars and marching formations made up of Airmen from F.E. Warren Air Force Base and other military units around Wyoming and Colorado.

The parade received positive responses with the crowd cheering and laughing all throughout.

“It’s always nice to have this kind of relationship with the base,” said Jeremiah Carter, a parade goer who came to attend with his family. “It’s important you don’t forget that partnership, we have a deep tie to the military here in this community and it shows.”

Volunteers from multiple squadrons and organizations on F.E. Warren come each year to assist in Cheyenne’s biggest annual event. Each CFD celebration typically includes several parades, a carnival, an air show with an Air Force Thunderbirds demonstration, professional bull riding, concerts, pancake breakfasts held in downtown Cheyenne, with the rodeo to top it off.
