PIERRE, S.D. -( Over 21,000 visitors attended the 52nd Annual Buffalo Roundup at Custer State Park, setting a new record for turnout at the event.

Custer State Park also hosted its three-day arts festival in conjunction with the Buffalo Roundup. Sizable crowds convened throughout the three-day celebration to enjoy entertainment such as Brulé, educational programs and the grand re-opening of the Peter Norbeck Outdoor Education Center.

“What a great weekend at Custer State Park,” said park superintendent Matt Snyder. “The Roundup was a success, and I heard nothing but compliments from how well the park looked to the variety of vendors at the Arts Festival. It was truly a team effort to make this weekend happen.”

The annual Roundup serves as a tool to help manage the park’s buffalo herd. About 250 buffalo will be sold at the park’s annual auction on Saturday, Nov. 18. For information on the auction, contact the park at 605.255.4515 or email

Upcoming Buffalo Roundups will be held on Friday, Sept. 28, 2018, and Friday, Sept. 27, 2019.
