29th Annual Buffalo Roundup & Arts Festival, Custer State Park
September 29 - October 1
The rumble starts underfoot as the first of the 1,400 buffalo crest the hill. Before long, the mighty animals are stampeding alongside Park personnel, cowboys and cowgirls, all attempting to herd the animals toward the Buffalo Corrals. You watch in awe from one of two designated viewing areas as the thundering beasts pass within a few hundred feet of you.
Not only is the roundup a spectacular sight to see, it is also a critical management tool in maintaining a strong and healthy herd.
