About BHMF

The Black Hills of South Dakota are home to world class trail running, mountain biking, rock climbing, fly fishing and outdoor sports of all kinds. We felt it was time there was a festival that reflects our love of the great outdoors, so a few of us got together and decided to take what used to be known as the Black Hills Fat Tire Festival and flip it on its head. We are putting together some big things to make this THE annual festival of its kind in the Black Hills, packed with activities, single track and endurance races, concerts and outdoor education to encourage people to get outside and explore all that the beautiful Black Hills have to offer.

June 15-17, 2018

Join us in Founder's Park on Father's Day weekend for the only festival of its kind in the Black Hills
(races @ HLMP trail system)

Free!! (bring the kids)

The best thing about the outdoors -
they are free & family friendly,
and so is our festival.
*individual race entry fees will apply.


No festival is complete without local food, drinks, and live music. Stay tuned for a concert lineup featuring some incredible blues, americana and bluegrass artists from all over the country!


Our awesome sponsors will be putting on seminars throughout the festival to get you ready for your next adventure. Classes include backpacking, fly fishing, mountain biking and more.


We are partnering with local and national vendors to get you outfitted and let you demo some of the newest, hottest gear.


BHMF is a partnership with Rapid City Parks & Recreation - profits & donations will benefit outdoor recreation, trail maintenance and local charities.

The Mountains are calling, and I must go
