The Denver Post

Cheyenne Frontier Days Train


For more than sixty years, this annual trip was a highlight for Denver and Colorado politicians and businessmen.  They were entertained and thrilled by the trip, the rodeo, and the hospitality they received during the ride and in Cheyenne.  In 1992, The Denver Post revived this wonderful event to help celebrate the 100th anniversary of The Denver Post.  It was so much fun, the trip has become a western institution once again.


The 24th Annual Denver Post Cheyenne Frontier Days Train is scheduled to operate Saturday, July 18, 2015. 

Tickets will be available by online lottery from May 10 to 20, 2015.  Passengers who purchased tickets on last year’s train will be emailed an invitation, in late April 2015 with details on how to request tickets in advance.

This excursion has become a popular summer event.  It features a full day of western excitement with an historic train ride, barbecue lunch feast, and the world famous “Daddy of ‘em all” Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo. Tickets also include a continental breakfast, admission to the Old West Museum in Frontier Park, beverages, and a light dinner on the return trip.
