Unique Local Festivals: The Buffalo Roundup South Dakota – History, Adventure, and Tradition

Saddle up and get ready for a wild ride because today, you’re headed to the Buffalo Roundup in South Dakota!

This episode is from The Travel South Dakota Stories, an immersive first-person podcast that takes you on a journey through the Land of Infinite Variety. In this episode, award-winning travel writer and host Brian Thacker takes you to one of my favorite hidden gem destinations in America, where you’ll get to experience one of the most unique events in the state.

Feel the ground rumble and the dust fly as sixty cowboys and cowgirls saddle up to bring in a thundering herd of 1,300 buffalo at the 57th Annual Custer State Park Buffalo Roundup. Through this compelling audio experience, you’ll be right there with Molly, one of the cowgirls, as she cracks her whip and corals the galloping buffalo. You’ll discover the buffalo’s role in American and Native American History, hear from a Lakota rider who explains what the buffalo means to them, and so much more.
