South Dakota State Fair



A celebration of agriculture, industry and entertainment, the South Dakota State Fair fills the city of Huron with excitement at the end of each summer. Livestock and crop growing competitions, 4-H exhibits, arts and crafts, a midway, rodeos and big-name concerts make the fairgrounds the place to be.
