Alternate directions to avoid construction on Highway 212

  • Directions from exit 177 via Alternate Truck Route (coming from the south on I-29)
  • Directions from exit 180 (coming from the north on I-29)
  • From US Hwy 212: turn north on 21st ST SW (the state office building with DMV, Dept of Health, etc. is on the NE corner of the intersection where you turn), go about 0.8 of a mile (through the four-way stop on 4th AVE SW), turn right (into the parking lot) before or after the ice arena
  • From SD Hwy 20: turn right (west) on 3rd AVE NW (Pizza Ranch is on SW corner, gas stations on NW and SE corners), follow as the road turns left and becomes 21st ST NW, turn left (east) into the parking lot at the extension complex sign

Most mapping sites try to take you to the extension offices, not the outside exits to the building the fair is in. You want to park in the parking lot off of 21st ST SW (entrances to the lot are on both sides of the ice arena), not off Kemp AVE. Please enter via Entrance H.
