Governor’s Buffalo Roundup held in South Dakota each September
South Dakota and the Rocky Mountain states of Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, North Dakota and Denver are coming to Scandinavia this year to promote a unique event in which 1,400 bison are rounded up with pickup trucks and horseback riders. The breathtaking event takes place annually on the last Monday in September.
Each year the organisers put together a new agenda for the hosting and fam tour prior to the event, and the dates of next year’s fam tour will be September 18-25. The tours can also be customised if participants have special concerns or interests. The roundup takes place over three days in Custer State Park together with the Governor of South Dakota.
