Early in 2018 the state of South Dakota named Chislic the 'State Nosh.' In essence, Chislic is a deep fried cubed meat served with a side sauce.

The very first South Dakota Chislic Festival is coming up Saturday (July 28) in Freeman. All I have to say is... IT'S ABOUT TIME! This is gonna be a blast!

The Freeman Festival Folks have announced an outline of the schedule of events for the day of food and fun.

A judged chislic contest will pit a variety of vendors to compete for prizes including $250 in cash and trophies.

Other fun offerings include:

  • horseback rides
  • a multi-area bouncy castle complex
  • City Park playgrounds and pool
  • South Dakota craft beers from across the state
  • Rock cover band, Annabelle Band will start playing at 5 PM.
  • bingo
