Fort Sisseton Historical Festival
During the first full weekend in June, cavalry troops and infantry units converge on the grounds of Fort Sisseton Historic State Park in northeastern South Dakota. They form a military encampment with soldiers, women, children and all the necessary tents, uniforms, horses and memorabilia. The festival covers the gamut of frontier life and settlement. It includes fiddle music, historic figures, an art and craft show, melodrama stage show, and music from the Civil War. 2019 marks the 42nd year.
