South Dakota State Fair festival will be one not to miss this year!

The South Dakota State Fair 2013 festival

Expected Attendance:  500,000+

Dates of the South Dakota State Fair August 29 – September 2, 2013

Showcasing a wide array of music superstars, exciting events, and many things to do and see, at this year’s South Dakota State Fair, plan now to celebrate the last week of summer.


Friday, August 29th
ALABAMA is the band that changed everything. They reeled off 21 straight #1 singles, a record that will probably never be equaled in any genre. They brought youthful energy, sex appeal and a rocking edge that broadened country’s audience and opened the door to self-contained bands from then on, and they undertook a journey that led, 73 million albums later, to the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Hits include:

Tennessee River
Dixieland Delight
The Closer You Get
Song of the South
If You’re Gonna Play in Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band)
My Home’s In Alabama
Dixieland Delight
$45/reserved seating

Sunday, August 31st

Always a huge crowd pleaser with their high-energy stage show, out-of-this-world sound, and remarkable musicianship and singing, BOSTON will feature the personnel and music from their highly acclaimed 2012 tour with some exciting additions. The band prides itself on performing a totally live show without the use of prerecorded music or technical enhancements, delivering the exceptional sound that is faithful to their studio recordings
