There are celebrations for every season and taste in South Dakota. Let the great adventure planning begin!
You can channel your inner pioneer at Laura Ingalls Wilder Pageant in De Smet or get your motor runnin' at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. Experience the culture and beauty of the area's earliest residents at powwows across the state or watch history in action during the biannual night blasts at Crazy Horse Memorial. Fun festivals and fairs, cultural happenings and delightful diversions can be found across the Mount Rushmore State. Sometimes they're delicious, sometimes they're weird, but they'll always be part of a trip you'll never forget.
