The Annual Sturgis® Motorcycle Rally™ turns our town of 7,100 into a city of more than 450,000 each year. In 2015, when we hosted the 75th Annual Rally attendance was estimated at 739,000!

Besides the non-stop excitement found on our Legendary Main Street, motorcycle enthusiasts enjoy concerts, charity rides, burnouts, stunt riding, great food, and new product manufacturing showcases.  If you haven't made the trip to Sturgis yet, we hope you plan to make the trip soon.
