South Dakota Department of Tourism - sitemap

Calendar of Events

On an ongoing basis, the South Dakota Department of Tourism compiles a statewide listing of events that appeal to visitors. The events are listed on (under "Things To Do" and then "Find An Event"). They are also distributed to visitors, travel writers, group tour operators, in-state media and other members of the travel industry.

Qualified events are listed free of charge. The Department of Tourism selects events that appeal to visitors; feature a variety of activities; capture a unique flavor of an area's geographic, historical or ethnic heritage; and/or cater to a specific group or niche audience.

To be considered for inclusion in the calendar, the event submission must include specific date(s), an event description (including location) and contact phone number.

Event submissions are accepted throughout the year. Events must be submitted using the online form, or, if you are a business that has an account in the Industry Portal, you may submit them there. All events must comply with the guidelines.
