South Dakota State Fair One of the Best in the Nation
The South Dakota State Fair in Huron, South Dakota is less than two months away. The family friendly venue offers a Women's Expo, Wheel Jam, the SD BBQ Championships and well as livestock events, horse events, and live music.
According to SmartAsset, they say that our state fair is tied for the fourth best state fair in the nation for 2017. The website says:
North Dakota’s neighbor just missed the top 10 last year, squeaking in as No.11. For this year’s study, the attendees (211,371 in 2016), good weather and bargain prices helped raise the event to the top five. Clocking in as the shortest state fair in the top 10 at only five days, the event still packs plenty on the schedule.
Attractions you’d be hard pressed to find elsewhere include an auctioneer bid-calling contest, strong man competition and a barbecue pork butt battle.
Taking the top spot on the 2017 is the Mississippi State Fair. The South Dakota State Fair takes place August 31st through September 4th. Musical acts include Big & rich, Justin Moore, Lynyrd Skynyrd and many more!
