The Stephens County Frontier Days is returning to Breckenridge after a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, and this year’s event will feature a venue change from past years.

This year, the Breckenridge Chamber of Commerce has partnered with the Stephens County Rodeo Association, and Frontier Days will be held in conjunction with the Ranch Rodeo at the Ag Arena and Barn on U.S. Highway 180 East.

Whitney Stultz, operations manager for the Chamber, said the move from the City Park, where Frontier Days has traditionally been held, is not necessarily a permanent change. The event organizers weren’t able to schedule a carnival for Frontier Days this year, so they didn’t need as much space for the activities.

The Frontier Days schedule includes several traditional events that should be familiar to those who have attended in the past, including a chuckwagon cook-off, a gunfighter show, stick horse races, vendor booths and food booths. New this year will be a cake bake-off and cake walk, a goat petting zoo and a concert. Breck Idol, a singing competition that had been held during Frontier Days for several years, is scheduled to take place during the Independence Day celebration in July.

The Bob Drake Memorial Chuckwagon Cookoff will be on Saturday morning, and the meal will be served at noon. Tickets will cost $15 each. During the meal, cowboy poet David “Two-Bit Pete” Hansford will perform.

The Ranch Rodeo and Frontier Days organizers teamed up to present a concert on Saturday night. The music lineup includes Kyle Fambro, Kerri Lick and the band Ragland. Tickets to the concert will cost $10, and there will be a $30 cooler pass.

All other events, including the rodeo, will be free of charge.

The Breckenridge Texan will have more details on the weekend’s events in an upcoming article. Keep an eye on the website and/or our Facebook page for more information.
