    It's Too Cold For Work Day

    Varies

    Every Wyomingite should be allowed one day per year where weather is the excuse. Don't feel like scraping your windshield? Use the "It's too cold" pass.

    Cheyenne Frontier Days Opening Day

    Late July

    Go enjoy Cheyenne Frontier Days, or not, your call. Either way, it's a day off in the summer and those are precious.
