CFD Accommodates Community Growth
Cheyenne Frontier Nights has grown to be an important part of Cheyenne Frontier Days. Featuring top name artists the park gets filled with visitors and residents by the thousands.
“This year we are committed to putting the ‘Cheyenne’ back in Cheyenne Frontier Days.” shared Cheyenne Frontier Days CEO, Tom Hirsig.
The organization looks to make changes in the upcoming year to accommodate positive community growth. One looming issue that the organizers will have to take into consideration is what growth will mean for the rodeo due to their current location being land-locked near I-25 and downtown. Additionally, their Park-N-Ride lot is currently being considered for a commercial and housing development, as is the parking lot near LCCC- currently utilized for the Thunderbirds’ festivities. Therefore, they have many factors to consider in the coming years as to how their organization can grow.
One major focus to accommodate positive growth is to focus and maintain quality control and provide optimal customer service. To make the night shows more enjoyable, they will be capping the number of tickets sold to 22,500 per show. Past shows, like Florida Georgia Line, sold over 25,000 tickets, with the additional 2,500 attendees causing strained safety and reduced overall quality control for the organization. The newly-imposed capped limit will change the way they can ensure a safer environment and be able to better serve goers.
