One of the best places to live in America!

In the past year, we have been named in the Top 50 small town downtowns, Top 10 livable small towns, and both of those distinctions come in the newly honored #3 in the Happiest States to live in. Yeah, we love our Spearfish SD, and clearly many others see our beauty and benefits. Give Spearfish a thought for your next Visit, or better yet, consider the City of Spearfish for your next home.

One of the 50 Best!

It is always nice to be recognized for your efforts, so needless to say we were quite pleased when Best Choice Reviews lauded Spearfish's Downtown as one of the 50 Best Small Downtown in America.

What makes this community great is the support we receive from our residents giving us the opportunity to do the events we have Downtown. Your patronage in our businesses make it possible to promote these events, and that truly embodies the hometown spirit that is quintessential Spearfish, and especially it's Downtown!

Thanks again Best Choice Reviews, and more importantly, thank you Spearfish - we are eternally grateful.

Downtown Spearfish is the place to be today!



Join us for the 2014 Holidazzle Parade and Chili Feed!

This year's parade starts at the Spearfish Rec Center, and travels south on North Avenue to Main Street, and continues to Downtown Spearfish.  The parade will then turn west on Grant Street, before turning north again to finish at the Spearfish City Park.

Be sure to join us Downtown ALL day - great sales from our merchants will accompany carolers from 1-3, with Santa in the Opera House from 1-4. The free chili feed for the SDBA will start at 5PM at Common Grounds, and be sure do grab some roasted chestnuts as well.  SDBA member Mark's Barbershop will be the head roaster, so be sure to try the unique flavor of the roasted chestnut.

Just before the parade, the Mistletoe Mile fun run will finish at Illinois Street. Runners dressed in festive attire will run individually or in teams, and prizes will be given for best costumes and most participation by a business.

Don't forget to register for a chance to win a share of $1500 in gift certificates and great items - see the list HERE.

The grand finale of course is the Holidazzle parade, with over 20 floats signed up so far this year. Come early for the shopping and stay for the festivities. See you Downtown!
