It's that time of the year again for the Black Hills Stock Show & Rodeo! This year marks the 60th annual event. Next to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, the Black Hills Stock Show & Rodeo is the second largest event in South Dakota each year! From January 26 - February 4, 2018, cowboys and ranchers come to compete in 10 different cattle shows, ranch rodeos and 14 different horse events. This is a family friendly event at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center and such a fun time!
In addition to the horse and rodeo events there are hundreds of vendors to shop from that offer western gear, clothing and tons more! I would suggest making time to shop the Cinch Trade Show before the rodeo starts! The booths are open each day starting at 10:00am. Though closing times very during the week so check out their schedule here.
There are two main events with the Sutton Rodeo, the PRCA Xtreme Bull Tour (January 26th - 27th) and the PRCA Rodeo (Jan 27th - Feb 3rd). If you can, spring for the VIP seats during any evening of the Sutton Rodeo. It is so worth the money and a totally different experience!
For the love of travel and new adventures, we live our lives for the next dream fulfilled!
