Days of 76 rodeo

My family (kids ages 13, 11 & 7)will be spending one night in Deadwood on July 24, and I just realized that is during the annual Days of '76 celebration. Looks like this might be an opportunity to see a good rodeo...schedule shows the rodeo at 6:00pm that evening. We will be in Cody, WY, the following night and planned to see the rodeo there, but maybe this will be a better opportunity and we can go to the museum in Cody instead. Comments?

What other opportunities for evening entertainment will be associated with the Days of '76? If we want to go to the rodeo will we need to get tickets in advance?

There is also a Days of '76 museum in Deadwood. In Cody the museums are open until 8 pm each night. I know that in Cody unless you are going around the 4th of July that you don't need to buy advance tickets but I would certainly check for a rodeo that only lasts 5 days in Deadwood.

I haven't been to the rodeo in Cody but I would say if that you would be happy with the Days of 76 rodeo--then spend the time at the Buffalo Bill museum in Cody. Days of 76 is known as a good small to mid-size rodeo.

As far as advance tickets--it's not a big grandstand so advance tickets and a timely arrival won't hurt.

The Friday and Saturday parades are the other "big" events of Days of 76. You'll miss it if you'll be there on July 24. You can check out the schedule here:
