4th of July in the Black Hills

American pride. There’s no shortage of that commodity here in the Black Hills of western South Dakota. Almost every town has a parade, and most of them have fireworks, too. Old West shootouts, cook-offs, car shows ‘n shines, great music, picnics, ice cream socials, farmers markets, re-enactors, arts and crafts vendors. The Black Hills is hosting an American birthday party, and everyone is invited!

American pride. There’s no shortage of that commodity here in the Black Hills of western South Dakota.

Of course, it starts with Mount Rushmore National Memorial, where thousands renew their patriotism every year during two days of July 4 ceremonial activities.

Almost every town has a parade, and most of them have fireworks, too. Our small towns are proud to display their love of country, each in its own distinctive way. Old West shootouts, cook-offs, car shows ‘n shines, great music, picnics, ice cream socials, farmers markets, re-enactors, arts and crafts vendors. They fit perfectly with the endless beauty, six national parks and monuments, world-class access to abundant wildlife, that the Black Hills can boast of year-round that make the region beloved by so many. 

We throw some of the best Fourth of July celebrations found anywhere in America. From the shrine of democracy, Mount Rushmore National Memorial, to one of the nation’s most unique and best fireworks displays at Lead’s Gold Camp Jubilee over the Homestake open cut; from the City of Presidents sculptures on every downtown corner in Rapid City, named America’s most patriotic city by Rand McNally in 2011, to western celebrations at the famed Black Hills Roundup rodeo in Belle Fourche and Custer’s Old Time Country 4th Celebration.

The Black Hills love hosting an American birthday party, and everyone is invited!
