In Memory Of donations for the

143nd Annual Rosebud Fair & Wacipi

Greeting To Everyone,

On August 23rd, 24th and 25th, 2019 Rosebud Sioux Tribe is preparing for our 143rd Annual Rosebud Fair & Wacipi in Rosebud SD. The fair includes Wacipi, Adult and Youth Rodeo, and Special Events that include Men's Fast Pitch Tournament, Women's Softball Tournament, Little League Tournament, T-Ball Tournament, Mud Races, Youth Day and Wacipi, Carnival, Road Run, Parade and other events.
The Rosebud Sioux Tribe is seeking In Memory Of Donations for the 143rd Annual Rosebud Fair & Wacipi Celebration and asking for your support. You can do an In Memory Of to any of the events that are listed above. We would need to know what you are donating too and the amount you plan to donate or the award. If you plan to do In Memory Of, please contact the person below as soon as possible. The money would have to be handed into finance by July 31, 2019 just to make sure Rosebud Sioux Tribe knows we have that covered for the event.

If your family is planning to have a special at the Wacipi, please contact the person below. We will need to know how many specials we will be having at the Wacipi to plan for these specials. We are no longer having specials during the Wacipi. It will be planned before the grand entry or during supper break.  
We are planning to get the poster for the Wacipi done by the end of January 2019. If you want your special on the Wacipi poster we need to know before the end of December 2018. 

If you have any questions, please contact Danielle Burnette, RST Fair Manager @ (605) 747-2381 ext 380 or email me at

For many years the Rosebud Sioux Tribe took on all the financial part of the fair. The money that is spent on the fair could be used for more important things like propane and lights. This annual celebration belongs to everyone that lives on the Rosebud Sioux Reservation. I am asking for everyone to support and contribute to our annual celebration.


Thank you!
