Kid Rock seemed to have summoned the gods to help with his light show during the 2013 Sturgis Rally.
“Huge shout out to the Buffalo Chip for the line up so far!! You guys are awesome!! For a few weeks we can all enjoy being free from all that life throws us. A big thank you from a big group in the Pacific Northwest!” - Julie Cathey
In addition to powerful performances, you’ll find a sick array of legendary rides, badass bike shows, crazy contests, thrilling exhibits, adrenaline-pumping powersports and insane stunts close at hand. With a jam-packed schedule of outrageous events that practically run around the clock, there is truly something for you and everyone else at the Buffalo Chip!
In 2015, Doug Danger broke a world record Evel Knievel® was never able to attain by jumping 22 cars in the Chip’s amphitheater on Evel’s® own 1972 H-D XR750.
“I saw this; it was awesome. He nailed it. So glad I was there and a part of it all. Best time of my life!” – Jeanie Smith
You won’t find more of it anywhere else. Experience it all, if you can. At the Best Party Anywhere™ you can get funky at over 25 bars, take a dip or join in some ridiculous contests at the treasured Bikini Beach Swim Paradise, bust a gut or pee your pants at the Buffalo Chip Comedy Club, break an after party sweat at the Club Chip dance club and take pictures with a bevy of beautiful bikini models, fire dancers and dance troupes. You can also eat a mountain of mouthwatering meals or pick up a Sturgis Rally memento by visiting any of the Chip’s one-of-a-kind vendors.
The Ultimate Rope Swing Contest is just one of the many hilarious and fun contests that happen daily at Bikini Beach.
“It's all about the experience and what kind of attitude you go there with. Go to have fun...you'll have fun! Where else can you experience all the Chip has to offer plus your campsite for around $300 for the week?” – Cheyenne Blackstone
More Bang for Your Buck!
This is no joke. You won’t find a better value anywhere else! One week of camping at the Buffalo Chip costs far less than staying at a Sturgis motel (And there you will find No entertainment, no events, no dancing girls, no contests, no dollar drafts and dogs, no neighbors begging you to join them in some serious life changing fun). You get the point.
Book your Sturgis camping packages in advance, and you’ll be rewarded with the lowest prices on Rally Passes, Extended Rally Passes and Early Bird Passes. Each package includes tent camping and access to restrooms and showers, and all concerts are free with camping. Prices will increase as the Sturgis Rally draws closer. So show your loyalty and put your faith in the fact that 35 years of putting on the Best Party Anywhere isn’t just happenstance. Make your reservations now to get the best Sturgis concerts, entertainment and camping at the lowest possible price.

Free pancake breakfast at the CrossRoads is just one of many ways people can stretch their dollar at the Buffalo Chip.
“An Alice cooper concert ticket would normally be over 50 dollars. The Buffalo Chip provided us with Alice Cooper, Five Finger Death Punch, and Sweet Cyanide for roughly 28 dollars if you bought your pass early. To me, that's extremely cheap! So if you plan on Sturgis, you better stay at the Buffalo Chip! The best parties, the best bands, best entertainment, and you'll meet some of the nicest people ever while you’re there! And, it's not even close to compare any other places.” - Chad Stuewe
