The Buffalo Roundup is held annually at beautiful Custer State Park in the Black Hills of South Dakota. If you’ve never been to this event, this could be the year!
Custer State Park is 71,000-acres of rolling meadows, gorgeous mountains, and peaceful forests. Named one of the World’s Top Ten Wildlife Destinations, the park is well-known for its vast array of animals and the up close encounters guests can have with them.
The park is home to an enormous herd of nearly 1,300 bison, arguably the most popular animal in the park. Visitors travel from across the U.S. every year to witness these beautiful creatures during the Annual Buffalo Roundup. Real-life cowgirls and cowboys roundup the herd during this exciting must-see event. This yearly occurrence is not only amazing to watch, but it’s necessary for the health of the herd.
The Custer State Park Buffalo Roundup will take place on September 29th, 2017. The event usually begins at 9AM and guests watch safely from viewing areas until all of the bison are in the corrals, usually around 12pm.
The Annual Art Festival also takes place at Custer State Park at this time. Visitors can explore hundreds of art and craft vendors from September 28th-September 30th as well as enjoy live entertainment. Many of the products are made locally in South Dakota.
The fun doesn’t stop there! After you’ve experienced the Buffalo Roundup, you can take a scenic drive, go hiking, biking, or horseback riding, or search for more wildlife. There are 5 lakes within Custer State Park, including beautiful Sylvan Lake, which are great for swimming, kayaking, and boating.
