 "For those who became champions and those who were good but never had the chance to prove themselves"

- Casey Tibbs

 

Just minutes from the interstate in cozy Fort Pierre, South Dakota, a cowboy treasure of epic proportions waits for hungry groups. Both a historical rodeo museum and a rentable venue for western-style entertainment and catered meals, the Casey Tibbs South Dakota Rodeo Center will prove to be a feast for the eyes, mind and belly.

Seated atop Verendrye Drive and across the river from South Dakota’s state capitol, Casey Tibbs Rodeo Center presents the state’s rich rodeo culture from the past and present day. Take a stroll through the outdoor garden, featuring life-size sculptures; admire memorabilia from champion rodeo performers, including the amazing, nine-time world champion rodeo performer Casey Tibbs, exhibits on the Great Plains Indian Rodeo, Olympic Rodeo and more. Learn about world-famous cowgirl trick rider extraordinaire – Mattie Goff-Newcome. Want to be a rodeo star? Do not miss the chance to ride a virtual bronc at the Casey Tibbs Rodeo Center.

Have dinner with a view at the Casey Tibbs Center’s conference area. Through the windows, historic Fort Pierre and the beautiful Missouri River vie for guests’ attentions against the dazzling cuisine, which can be catered to specific South Dakota fare such as bison steaks, and entertainment. Upon request, the Casey Tibbs Center can bring the heart of South Dakota to life before bus tour groups’ eyes with presentations from Lakota dancers, Rodeo Ambassadors and more. Ask about adding a Lewis and Clark historical presentation to a conference center rental to increase the educational factor of a tour.
