Each year, the Casey Tibbs Foundation pays tribute to six individuals who have exemplified and contributed to the sport of rodeo in South Dakota.

Individuals may purchase tickets by phone or in person through the Casey Tibbs South Dakota Rodeo Center in Fort Pierre. There are a limited number of tickets and, in years past, tickets have sold out in very short time frames.

The honoree’s photos and biographies are added to the permanent “Wall of Fame” located in the Mattie Goff Newcombe Conference Center of the South Dakota Rodeo Center. The Rodeo Center will be accepting nominations through May for the 2023 Tribute Dinner.
