Cruiser Heads to Sturgis City Park

The new hub in the heart of Sturgis

Sturgis is a big party, right? Of course it is. But some people like to party a little... differently than most. Back in 1983 a few hard-goin' bikers ruined the fun of Sturgis City Park for the rest of us by getting a little too rowdy and lighting things on fire. Good news is, it's back!

This year, Sturgis City Council entered into a lease agreement with a promoter to create and manage a venue located at the Sturgis City Park. The idea is to enhance the experience of everyone visiting Sturgis during the 75th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

The venue is scheduled to host AMA Supermoto racing, freestyle motocross, motorcycle stunt shows, motorcycle shows, family friendly concerts, and more. With more and more attendees eligible for the senior menu at Denny's, the idea is to draw in a younger demographic while bringing in new and exciting motorcycle professionals, enthusiasts, builders, manufacturers, and more to the rally for years to come. Exhibitors and sponsors will also be hawking parts, accessories, and, of course, apparel. Limited camping will be provided for support staff, racers, and entertainers.

Sturgis City Park will be open to the public for 11 days starting on Thursday, July 30 through Sunday, August 9. The Sturgis City Park is walking distance to the Historic Main Street in Downtown Sturgis.
