Sturgis Motorcycle Rally

STURGIS, SOUTH DAKOTA

August 4-13, 2017

This is without a doubt our number 1 choice for attendance.  We suggest going early before the rally starts to avoid the high prices of hotels and stay for the first few days of the beginning of the rally.  This rally region is in the western part of South Dakota and the eastern part of Wyoming.  The bullseye is the city of  Sturgis and is a piece of the puzzle that you need to visit at least once to cruise down Main Street, take a demo ride with the OEM’s, check out the hundreds of vendors and head out to the Buffalo Chip for an unforgettable visit.  The other must do stop is Black Hills Harley-Davidson where tier one manufacturers are selling, installing and demoing their products.  We have compiled a PDF for the top 75 things to do for this event, have an interest in purchasing this contact us at  events@bikercityguide.com
