Those that know, produce! Tuff Hedeman was 'the man' for nearly two decades in the sport of bull riding. Like a golf great who goes on to design golf courses, Hedeman has morphed over to producing events like the 'bull bash!

According to a press release from the South Dakota State Fair;

Hedeman formed the Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding Tour after serving for 23 years as the former head of the two nationally organized professional bull riding organizations (PBR and CBR). Hedeman retired from the sport in 1999.

The bull bash is also an opportunity for South Dakotans to thank a vet!

The Red Wilk Construction American Hero Award will be held during the bull riding both nights. Since 2013, more than 100 Veterans from all over South Dakota have been honored. Typically, eight Veterans are honored each night.

Ticket presales will begin soon. Make sure you get yours as soon as they become available.
