Economic Impact


Its boots and chaps and cowboy hats in Rapid City when the 58th  annual Black Hills Stock Show & Rodeo®  rolls into town January 29-February 7, 2016.

Our little Midwestern city becomes a slice of the old west when cowboys and ranchers come to town to compete in cattle shows, ranch rodeos, bronc matches and PRCA rodeo action.  We sell all kinds of cattle, horses and buffalo as well.  You can shop the hundreds of vendors displaying their western heritage wares or stroll through the remarkable western art show.  You can also watch the National Sheep Shearing Championships or the North American Sheepdog Trials.

Over 330,000 people attend the stock show as it serves as a midwinter reprieve before the hectic spring calving season.  We offer everything western and a little extra too.  You won’t have to leave the blacktop to see the real west as we bring it all to you in Rapid City.
