The SDBA is looking for Holiday Cheer!

That's right, spread YOUR holiday cheer with others this year by bringing your special talent Downtown during the season. We are looking for Carolers for each weekend (Dec. 6th is covered), bake sales, wreath makers and/or wreath booths (wreaths also covered on December 6th).

We also would love to have chestnut roasters, ornament makers, choirs, music ensembles... any talent or holiday treasure. Heck, you may play the Seussian Jing Tinglers, Flu Floopers, Tar Tinkers, or Who Hoovers, and if you do - we want you Downtown!

Let's bring that hometown Christmas spirit that we have each Christmas Stroll and bring it to Downtown Spearfish each weekend this year, and what better way than to have the talents of our local residents!

Contact Marcia Kazmer at 605-559-0359 or via email at, or Mark Kazmer at 605-642-5421 or We look forward to you joining us this holiday season!

Final Downtown Friday Nights this Friday!

After a rain filled start to the season, Downtown Friday Nights was blessed with some wonderful weather, great bands, awesome vendors, and energetic crowds.  What better way to cap the season than with all of the above! DD and the Fayrohs returns to Spearfish looking to reprise their stellar performance from last year. Originally scheduled for the 1st week, this South Dakota Rock and Roll Hall of Fame band kindly rescheduled to avoid the cold and rain that the initial DFN brought us. As it stands today, the forecast is for 3 hours of classic rock pouring from the stage...but no rain.  If the 0% chance of rain holds true, we know the other forecast will!

We will do so in more detail soon, but the Spearfish Downtown Business Association would like to thank it's sponsors, volunteers, vendors, and attendees, but a great big thank you goes out to the DFN committee and the chairman of that committee, Scott Temple. It was decided early in the season that the committee would be better served by one coordinator rather than co-coordinators, and Scott was willing to take on that task. Scott would also tell you that it was due to the work of many, and he would be right, but the results of this event have Scott's imprint on each facet, and that is quite noteworthy. We aren't even done with this year's event and yet, we are already excited to see what happens next year. Thanks again!

Downtown Friday Nights returns to Main Street

We have decided to move the stage back to Main Street!

Andy Young of Judd Hoos
Although the idea to move to Hudson Street was to showcase the intersection that is our Downtown's core, it just became too crowded. The power for our vendors is centered there, so everything competed for space and it caused crowding in that area and vast open areas on Main Street.

The crowding coupled with looking into the sun for part of the evening has made DFN less appealing to some, and we want to correct that. Starting with this week and Judd Hoos, the stage will return to Main and stay there until the end of the season (September 5th).

Join us for a great week with Judd Hoos returning to Spearfish.  Since their last visit, 2 members from JoeforNothin' have joined the Hoos, so don't miss this power packed show!
