That’s how Bill Dubois, a 2004 inductee in the Cheyenne Frontier Days™ Hall of Fame, replied when asked why he had been volunteering for more than four decades in a variety of capacities at the “Daddy of ’em All®.” Today, more than 2,500 volunteers work year round to produce an event that includes parades, pancake breakfasts, world-class concerts, chuckwagon cook-offs, carnival, exhibits, Indian Village, military open houses, and of course the event that started it all nine Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) rodeos.


The volunteer handbook is designed to inform volunteers about Cheyenne Frontier Days. No volunteer handbook can anticipate every circumstance/question. After reading the handbook please feel free to discuss any questions you might have with your lead and/or chairman.

I’ve volunteered since I was really little at Chute 9. Frontier Days is my favorite time of the year. I tell everyone it’s my favorite holiday. This is my first year with the Rodeo Committee. I have enjoyed my assignments like helping with slack and working the rodeos. - Karly T., Frontier Nights Fan and Long-Time CFD Volunteer
