Game, Fish and Parks

The Game Fish and Parks booth has always been a staple at the fair. You have questions about a critter? Stop at the GFP booth!  Want to see some fish!?  Stop by the GFP booth!  Need a little bit of shade and a spot to rest?  Take a load off at the GFP booth!

This year is no different!  To make sure we are practicing good social distancing, GFP is offering self guided activities to keep everyone entertained. Back by popular demand, it’s the Fairground-wide scavenger hunt, where some lucky winner will be taking home a camping package! 

Get hooked into our Fair bio-blitz where identifying animals can really get you moving.

Wander down our activity trail and see exactly what your inner bird or animal is.

Are you artistic? Well maybe the Second Century Habitat art/coloring contest is for you.

We will also have staff on hand to discuss zebra mussels and other AIS species as well as having our fish on hand to say hi!

South Dakota State Fair Logo

Exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any public location where people are present. The South Dakota State Fair cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during your visit.

We will implement enhanced health and safety measures for our guests and staff members during the 2020 South Dakota State Fair.

COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. The CDC and State of South Dakota advise those who are particularly vulnerable to COVID-19, including those over age 60 and those suffering from underlying medical conditions to evaluate their own risk in determining whether to attend the State Fair. People who show no symptoms can spread Coronavirus if they are infected, and any interaction with the general public poses an elevated risk of infection. By visiting the South Dakota State Fairgrounds, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
