Sturgis Rally

Sturgis is the motorcycle capital of the world. Every year, for a week in early August, motorcycle enthusiasts gather to the center of the planet for biking events, rally races, and music.

The rally explodes with things to check out. We recommend making some time to see some of the biggest acts in classic and contemporary rock. Small and large venues alike deliver some awesome shows for the rally. Don’t miss some of the most eruptive races for motorcross, professional and amateur hillclimbs, drag, and more. This is also the chance to get a fantastic and memorable new tattoo, buy some special customization parts, and order some classic mountain country cuisine. At every turn you can find new Sturgis rally things to do.

This is the greatest motorcycle social gathering in the country, and the town of Sturgis has achieved a renowned notoriety for its adherence to fist-pumping and guttural-shaking motorcycle culture.

The Sturgis motorcycle rally is the defining local event. But where can you stay when you visit for the season? Our Black Hills vacation rentals, just outside Sturgis, give you an authentic South Dakota experience for the season. There’s fun things to do for families who want to see the Sturgis rally, but would prefer to stay outside town.
