Frontier Park is an 88-acre testament to generations of volunteerism. There are over 125 years of hard work, time, talent, and pride on these hallowed grounds. We have cared for this home that celebrates the culture and history of the American West so that future generations can experience them.
We now have a way to honor family members, and volunteers past and present, with the donation of a Memorial Bench through the Cheyenne Frontier Days Foundation. This new program will place 50 memorial benches throughout Frontier Park.
The benches are steel park benches, 6 feet in length, with a back and arm rests. An optional, engravable cast bronze plaque will allow for three lines of text to formally acknowledge an entire family or an individual. These benches will give guests a place to rest while honoring those who have given time and talent to the celebration.
Benches are available for $5,000 and support the Cheyenne Frontier Days Foundation. The CFD Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit set up to support the philanthropic activities and educational opportunities of Cheyenne Frontier Days for its continued growth and relevance as the preeminent Western celebration.

Cheyenne Frontier Days is donating the proceeds from the 2022 Pick Up Man campaign for suicide awareness and prevention, to Grace for 2 Brothers and the Wyoming Chapter of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Each organization will receive $4,690 which was raised from the sale of yellow feathers and yellow feather jewelry in support of the campaign.
Country music star Garth Brooks also helped the effort by creating a message to elevate the theme of the role of the rodeo Pick Up Man in the arena. The campaign encourages people to “reach out to a Pick Up Man or be a Pick Up Man for someone in need.” The new nationwide 988 Suicide Prevention Hotline information is also included. Individuals who see friends, family members, or neighbors struggling with mental health are encouraged to reach out.
The Pick Up Man campaign will continue as part of the Cheyenne Frontier Days Foundation and its mission to support the educational and philanthropic activities of Cheyenne Frontier Days, Inc. “Suicide touches everybody. It’s critical we all become a Pick Up man for someone else or reach out to our Pick Up man when life feels overwhelming. Yellow feathers help start the conversation of bringing awareness to suicide prevention and highlighting the need to reach out when needed,” said Renée Middleton, Executive Director of the Cheyenne Frontier Days Foundation.
“Our western culture of independence and self-reliance may inhibit people from seeking help, or people from offering help,” Tom Hirsig, CFD CEO said. “In rodeo, we call the pick up man a lifesaver in the arena. Every cowboy knows the pick up man is out there to help, to give a hand. And the athletes do not hesitate to reach out for help. We want everyone to use that example in their lives.”
The campaign acknowledges that suicide rates in the Rocky Mountain West are among the highest in the nation. “We wanted to raise awareness about these high rates in our state and region and make sure that individuals are connected to the national 988 hotline, where appropriate counseling can be provided,” said Rick Schum, CFD Foundation Board.
CFD will continue selling “Pick Up Man” hat feathers and necklaces as part of the campaign with net proceeds being given to local suicide prevention efforts.

“ROUGH RIDE busts right out of the chute and it twists and bucks until the last page. It’s a fun inside-view primer that serves as a “behind-the-chutes” tour of the largest outdoor rodeo in America.” — C.J. Box, #1 New York Times best-selling author of SHADOWS REEL
Darcy Moreland is thrilled to be back in her old home town of Cheyenne, Wyoming and working as a reporter for the local TV station, KCWY. As a bonus, Zach Horton, an old college friend, is station manager and now her boss. On her first assignment covering the carnival midway of Cheyenne Rodeo Days, a body drops from the top of the Ferris wheel inches from her videographer who was lying on the asphalt to get a special shot. Darcy knew the girl and her family which only galvanizes her determination to find the cause of Bridget’s death. Her investigation hits a snag in the form of CPD Detective Hank Nelson, who warns her to stay out of the investigation. Darcy decides Hank is attractive but annoying. She ignores his warnings. Another body drops. Chaos ensues. So far it has been a rough ride. Can Darcy solve both murders by the end of Cheyenne Rodeo Days?
