2020 Season Cancelled

We are extremely disappointed to report that Summer Nights has been cancelled for 2020. We were recently notified that Special Event capacity within the city was going to be limited to 250 through the summer and therefore our permit as submitted could not be approved.

2020 Season Delayed

The entire world has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and in recent weeks the state of South Dakota and our community has been affected. Given this information, the City’s Special Events Committee has decided to postpone all special events through June.

Trucker Radio (July 25th, 2019)

Trucker Radio put on a great show on the Pepsi Stage for Week 9 at Summer Nights, sponsored by Traffic Services Company.  Those in attendance were also treated to an appearance from the famous Budweiser Clydesdales who paraded around downtown.  As always the crowd was energetic, the food was amazing, and the music was electric.  Here’s some highlights from the night.
