South Dakota State Fair attendance up slightly over 2014; revenue up estimated 6 percent


HURON, South Dakota — Attendance at this year's South Dakota State Fair was up slightly from 2014, pleasing organizers.

The state Agriculture Department says the five-day fair in Huron last month drew 210,893 people, about 400 more than last year.

Attendance in 2014 was up 15 percent from the previous year. Fair Director Peggy Besch says the 2014 numbers were "phenomenal," and the goal this year was to keep pace. She says that goal was met.

Besch says preliminary revenue estimates indicate a 6 percent increase over last year.

Next year's State Fair is Sept. 1-5.
