Any September dates to avoid?

I am planning a trip to SD...thinking 9/20-10/1...want to avoid any events that will attract even more tourists than other dates. Any advise appreciated.

This year's buffalo round up in Custer State Park is Sept. 24. The park will be busy on this day, but many really enjoy seeing this event and arrive early. I know one of our regulars, Mt. Mama, has been a few times and wouldn't miss it, so you might find it of interest. I can't think of any other event that would be a big people draw. September is typically rated a very good time to visit the area.

Enjoy your trip!

The Great Downtown Rapid City Pumpkin Festival will be held on Saturday September 29th, but that doesn't draw many tourists (just locals). If you're in Rapid City that day it could be a nice diversion and chance to grab a caramel apple.

Deadwood will be having the Deadwood Jam concert on Sept. 14 and 15. Not huge numbers but it does bring people in.
