Courtesy Golf Carts

Courtesy golf carts are available during the State Fair. They are free to ride and anyone can ride them. The carts are located at all gates and at random places around the fairgrounds as people need them. The courtesy carts are sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars, American Legion and their auxillaries, the SD Wheat Commission and Huron Regional Medical Center.


First Aid Station

A first aid station, with attendants on duty during the fair day, is located at the west end of the grandstand.

Golf Carts

Personal golf carts are not allowed on the fairgrounds during the SD State Fair.

Attention Golf Cart Renters/Drivers: 
According to the City of Huron ordinance, non-licensed golf carts are not allowed on city streets or sidewalks. Golf carts rented from GTI are not licensed and therefore are subject to ticketing at $122 plus towing cost.

Due to safety concerns, this ordinance will be enforced this year by the Huron Police Department. Non-licensed golf carts are not allowed off the State Fairgrounds except for:

  • Gate 13 Campers: Must use the Lot G Gate located on the south side of Gate 13 on Center Street to go back and forth to Gate 6on Center (do not use Gate 13 Gate or Market Road)
  • Lot H Campers: Must use 6th Street to Gate 1 to go back and forth (do not use Gate 8 or Lincoln Ave)

Any non-licensed golf carts found using Lincoln Avenue, Market Street or other side streets are subject to fines and loss of golf cart. Golf cart permits purchased from the SD State Fair office in previous years are NO LONGER VALID.


Rental golf carts will be allowed on the fairgrounds and available through GTI Golf Carts. GTI is taking reservations, which are on a first come, first serve basis.  There are a limited number of carts available. 

  • Please make the State Fair Administration Office your first stop to hand in your proper paperwork and to purchase a permit.  You will not be able to rent a cart or check your already rented cart out until proper paperwork and permit have been taken care of.
