The Black Hills Roundup is one of the oldest continuously held outdoor rodeos in the USA. This year’s rodeo and festivities will take place during a red, white and blue, star-spangled six-day period over the Fourth of July weekend.  And folks from all over the country and even from abroad come to the “Center of the Nation” to celebrate with us.

If you want to get a flavor of the raw, git ‘er done cowboy spirit of competition you will not want to miss it! Tickets to the rodeo are available on the website.
