PIERRE, S.D.-( Picture perfect weather drew near-record crowds for the 51st Annual Buffalo Roundup and Arts Festival at Custer State Park.

Last year during the 50th Anniversary, attendance reached nearly 22,000 spectators. This year’s attendance was close to 21,000, almost matching last year’s record-setting numbers.

Custer State Park also hosted its three-day arts festival in conjunction with the Buffalo Roundup. Good crowds gathered throughout the three-day celebration to enjoy entertainment, educational programs, the buffalo chip flip as well as the Buffalo Wallow Chili Cook-off and Buffalo Art Stampede Arts Auction.

“All in all it was a fantastic three days in Custer State Park with the Buffalo Roundup and Arts Festival,” said park superintendent Matt Snyder. “We’re already planning for next year’s event which will be held Sept. 28-30.”

The annual Roundup serves as a tool to help manage the park’s buffalo herd. About 200 buffalo will be sold at the park’s annual auction on Saturday, Nov. 19. For additional information on the auction, contact the park at 605.255.4515 or email

Upcoming Buffalo Roundups will be held on Friday, Sept. 29, 2017, and Friday, Sept. 28, 2018.
