SDSU and South Dakota Fair teaming up for ticket giveway

The South Dakota State Fair and South Dakota State University Athletics have teamed up on a Labor Day weekend ticket promotion.

Anyone purchasing tickets for the SDSU Jackrabbits football team’s season opener on August 31st will also receive a one-day pass to attend the South Dakota State Fair, which runs August 31st through September 4th in Huron.  SDSU season ticket holders will receive their State Fair passes in the mail with delivery of their season tickets.

Fair Assistant Manager Candi Briley says that both the State Fair and SDSU football are long-standing traditions for many families, and are well known for having a connection to agriculture.  She says providing free fair passes to those attending the August 31st football game will hopefully encourage people to then take in the activities at the State Fair as well.

The 2017 South Dakota State Fair theme is “Seriously Twisted Fun.” More information on the State Fair’s schedule of events can be found on its website at
