The Chislic Festival In South Dakota Is About The Tastiest Event You Can Experience
Chislic is the (un)official food of South Dakota, and for a great reason. Think about it: It’s mouthwatering meat, it’s on a stick, and it’s served with saltines… it’s the perfect meal, right? That being said, it only makes sense that South Dakotans pay homage to this delicious meal via the elaborate South Dakota Chislic Festival, which you are invited to help celebrate:
Located at the Prairie Arboretum in Freeman, the South Dakota Chislic Festival is a must for South Dakotans of all ages, and wait until you see why!
Featuring all of the salted meat that you can eat (and then some!), the South Dakota Chislic Festival is home to food vendors galore who come from all over the state to share their take on this savory dish.
While eating chislic all day is reason enough to attend the festival, there is even more to see and do at the South Dakota Chislic Festival, including live music, presentations, races, games, and helicopter rides.
Bring the kids, as the South Dakota Chislic Festival also offers games and events just for the littles.
