The honoree’s photos and biographies are added to the permanent “Wall of Fame” each year, located in the Casey Tibbs South Dakota Rodeo Center. The Rodeo Center will be accepting nominations throughout the year for the 2021 Tribute Dinner.

Ticket sales for the 31st Annual Tribute Dinner start on Oct. 1, and tickets for the event must be purchased in advance. Individuals may purchase a ticket by phone or in person through the Casey Tibbs South Dakota Rodeo Center in Fort Pierre.
