SD State Fair reshuffles grandstand lineup in face of virus

South Dakota State Fair

HURON — The grandstand acts at the South Dakota State Fair have been revamped due to COVID-19.

Concerts including The Charlie Daniels Band and the Marshall Tucker Band have been postponed to 2021.

The revised lineup for 2020 includes the Tuff Hedeman Bull Bash to be held Thursday, September 3 and Friday, September 4. The Thunder at the Fair Outlaw Truck and Tractor Pull will be held Monday, September 7. All tickets will be sold as general admission and will go on sale July 20.

The South Dakota Timed Event Championship Rodeo will be held in the grandstand Saturday, September 5 and Sunday, September 6. This event will be free for fairgoers.

Officials said earlier this month that the 135th annual event, scheduled for Sept. 3-7, remains on as scheduled, and the fair will implement health and hygiene measures, while some components of the fair are expected to be scaled down to meet Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.
