The Sioux Empire Livestock Show

Since 1954, the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce has been sponsoring one of the best Livestock Shows in the upper Midwest. Over the years the show has grown to include the best market and purebred livestock from across the region as well as the latest in agricultural commercial exhibits.

Sioux Falls rolls out the red carpet to welcome these visitors – estimated at more than 30,000 throughout the week. The annual Sioux Empire Livestock Show is a great way for South Dakota´s largest city to recognize the impact that agriculture continues to have in our community.
