2015 Santa Maria BBQ

The 2015 Santa Maria BBQ annual event and auction is being held this September at the local VFW! All of our South Dakota raised beef is cooked over an open oak fire and then seasoned for a taste that's hard to beat. All of our tickets come with an additional raffle stub for a drawing to be held later in the event. Please call the museum at 605-385-5189 to reserve your ticket(s) for this special event.

The legendary BBQ is a tradition that has been held by the Missile Wing for years.
