I was devastated for all the college rodeo athletes last year, when the 2020 CNFR was cancelled due to Covid. But this year, the show is a go, and Casper, Wyoming will play host. The show runs June 12 – June 19th.
As a former college rodeo athlete myself, who unfortunately, despite all my hard work, never made it to the CNFR, I have an affinity for rodeo and for those who do make this amazing show on dirt.
Not only is there an amazing rodeo to see, Casper is home to so many activities, you could keep yourself busy for weeks!
Below, I’m sharing a few of the things I’d do if I were going to be in Casper this year. I hope you can make it to cheer on your favorite rodeo athlete or to simply enjoy the atmosphere. Fun fact: Rodeo is THE most watched sport in the United States.
I’m a fan of all the craft beers (three cheers for beers!), and if you too are a fan of the craft beer – here’s my recommendation The Mountain Hops Brewhouse, of course:
Or are spirits more your thing? If you’d prefer a boutique distillery, Casper has you covered with Backwards Distilling! Both of these would be excellent choices to grab a quick drink after the rodeo lets out!
If you’re the outdoorsy type, and Lord knows I am: I’d have to go see Fremont Canyon and Hike around!
The photographer in me would have to go see Casper Mountain and Hells Half Acre. I’m sure the views are spectacular.
And let’s not forget The Rodeo. Give me all the rodeo action. In fact, I’ve been so busy getting my barrel horses ready for rodeo season, I haven’t had time to even watch any rodeos!
When we’re hungry we’ll all go to the Silver Fox Steakhouse, because, well, Beef.
Now, who is ready to come with me to go Visit Casper?
