What is the Black Hills Mountain Fest?
Get the details!

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.
