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 South Dakota Wheat Commission, and Jack's Campers.

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

After a great deal of consideration and research, the South Dakota Department of Agriculture decided not to have golf cars available to rent. Our current policy prohibiting personal golf cars will also remain in place. While we understand this may be an inconvenience, the welfare and safety of both people and livestock were heavily weighed. The South Dakota State Fair will continue to offer courtesy car rides, with additional courtesy cars added to the fleet, and trolley rides.  

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

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.
