Born from the Buffalo Chip Picnic, the beast feasted and roamed the plains, gathering momentum and other beasts to its side until the ground shook beneath them, man and gawds stirred, sweat flung from their frothy fur and fell from the sky like rain, and it came to be known as the thunderous Moto Stampede!


Moto Stampede® Race and Concert Series

Full Schedule Coming Soon!


There’s racing and then there’s the Moto Stampede: Racing and concerts combined in a series like no other Sturgis and the world has ever seen! 

The Moto Stampede is a throwback to good ole days when hooligans, flat trackers and head nod street draggers twisted off for smiles and fun.
