Many South Dakotans got out to enjoy the state fair and all its attractions over the five-day event.

Fairgoer spending on goods, services, and concessions totaled more than $2.8 million. The 2022 fair featured 598 booths rented to 309 different vendors, as well as dozens of events and activities that drew big crowds.
