It’s July… and in Wyoming, that means there’s a lot going on!
For our fellow locals in Cheyenne, seeing those familiar banners and pennants strung up around downtown can only mean one thing: Cheyenne Frontier Days is back!
Congratulations to our friends at CFD on firing up the “Daddy of ’em All” for another go-around. This year’s shows are packed with the biggest names in country music, like Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, Maren Morris, Eric Church and many more. We’ll have a team on site at Frontier Park July 23rd – August 1st, so say hello if you see us out at the shows and around the arena. For a detailed schedule of events visit them here.
Speaking of shows, you should make a “Fantastic Voyage” to our place on Saturday, July 17th, to party with Coolio and Rob Base. (More on that below.)
Collective Off The Clock
It’s been a busy (and exciting) year for Client Success Manager Niki! In addition to working her magic for some of the Collective’s biggest clients—and recently celebrating her 4th “West Edgeversary” with us—Niki’s been enjoying the exciting new world of mamahood with baby Emmett. “I’m loving every minute,” she says, “but time is going way too fast!”
This summer, Niki, her husband Colby, and six-month-old Emmett are enjoying tons of family time and park trips; cheering on Cheyenne’s Post 6 baseball team, which Colby helps coach; and, most recently, getting their hands dirty with a basement renovation project.
It’s another month of celebrations for some of our favorite people to spend the day with. Hap-hap-happiest of birthdays to Nicole (July 12th), Chad (July 14th), Fatos (July 16th) and Nate (July 19th).
We’re also celebrating two West Edge anniversaries! Congrats to Mycena on July 20th for 3 years, and Hilary on July 22nd for 2 years.

The annual 4-Ever West Tattoo Fest and Paint Slingers street art and tattoo festival is set to go off at West Edge Collective, down 15th Street, and on the Depot Plaza in just a couple of weeks! Join us downtown to watch glass blowers, acrobats, live painting, tattooing, arm wrestling and much, much more.
Saturday night, we’re hosting a FREE concert with Coolio and Rob Base, starting at 7 p.m. outside our place.
Behind the Scenes with West Edge
Goshen Economic Development Video Shoot
Recently, we traveled to Torrington to film a video for Goshen Economic Development, highlighting all the ways the Goshen team supports businesses in Goshen County. While we were there, we even got to take part in their “3rd Thursday on Main Street” event, featuring live music, food, vendors, and more. (Our team highly recommends the walking tacos.)
For this trip, our summer interns got to tag along, and it was a great opportunity to teach them about video production and what all goes in to an on-location shoot. They learned how to operate cameras, set up lighting, and record audio, and even got some time behind the controls of the drone.
Congrats to our friends at Los Conejos!
Voted best food truck in Cheyenne.
We’ve always said Chef Juan and Chef Seth serve up the best street tacos, breakfast burritos, sliders and truffle fries in town… and now it’s official according to Y95 Country listeners!
Visit them here to see what they’re serving up (and where) today.
