Letter From The Mayor


Dear Motorcycle Enthusiast,

Welcome to Sturgis 2017! Sturgis opened its arms to biker enthusiasts some 63 years ago and we look forward to many more years of hosting the “premiere” motorcycle rally in the world. The residents of Sturgis are committed to making the Sturgis Rally the best event of its kind.

With the formation of the new City of Sturgis Rally Department, I will be directly involved in the promotion and planning of the Rally. I look forward to the exciting events taking place such as the return of our successful Sturgis AMA Half Mile Race, my 2nd Annual Mayors Vendor Appreciation Reception and the many attractions that make the Rally unique.

I hope you will find this website to be both informative and welcoming. Please contact the Rally Department, if you would like more information regarding the Sturgis Rally. The Rally Director, Lisa Weyer and her staff can assist you with information on vending, visiting, accommodations and general information to make your visit to the Sturgis Rally enjoyable.

I hope you will visit the “City of Riders” and be a part of the 2003 Sturgis Rally. Be sure to pick up the Official Sturgis Rally Schedule of Events & Pocket Guide upon your arrival so that you can plan your activities during the Rally. Enjoy your visit and I look forward to your many return visits.

Best Regards,
Mark T. Zeigler
Mayor, City of Sturgis
