In a joint partnership between the local rodeo committee, The Flandreau Santee Sioux Tribe, and Royal River Casino Flandreau Rodeo Days host their inaugural event last June. The first year was a huge success.
The First Annual Flandreau Rodeo Days brought over 200 contestants and in excess of 500 spectators each day to witness two days of heart pounding rodeo excitement.
