Love is in the air this month. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, the Black Hills and Badlands provide a plethora of events for you and your loved one to attend together. Celebrate the finer things in life at tasty chocolate festivals and break up cabin fever at romantic events all month long.

Dinner for Two
The Black Hills and Badlands region are home to excellent restaurants, perfect for a romantic dinner for two. Check out our restaurant listings to find the perfect one. We recommend making reservations to ensure you have a spot saved for you.

Looking for an exceptional dining experience? Check out Custer Restaurant Week, taking place from Wednesday, Feb. 27 through Saturday, March 2, 2019. Participating restaurants in the town of Custer offer daily specials and discounted dishes.

Sweeten Up Your Love

Got a major sweet tooth? There is no shortage of chocolate festivals happening this month, all in the name of love. Treat your sweetheart to dessert at any of these chocolate tasting events in the Hills.


Work It Out

No chocolate festival is complete without a little exercise to work it all off. These events make exercise fun and easy. Be sure to cheer on your sweetie as they work to achieve their fitness goals, or get back on track with their new year’s resolution.


Frosty Events

No matter how hot your love is, it’s hard to ignore the fact that its winter in South Dakota. Even though it’s winter, we still like to throw a good party in the Black Hills and Badlands (maybe with just a little more alcohol to warm us up). Check out these events that you won’t find anywhere else but here.

Who knew? Minnow races in February! Grab a bowl and warm up with some chili as you watch the minnows race to the finish line, all for a good cause.

The Sundance Winter Festival is unlike any other winter festival you’ve been to before. Check out the extreme fun of skijoring with horses (you have to see it to believe it), try your hand at downhill bar stool races in your craziest costume, or test your skills in the Wild Horse and Tube races. 

Yup. You heard that right. Outhouse races. You can enter your own team to compete or come watch as other teams race their homemade outhouses down a snowy racetrack. At least one person must be inside the outhouse, and it’s usually a bet as to whether they stay inside or not. We never said we had boring events!

Whether it’s time to renew your love for each other or to simply enjoy life, there’s plenty to see and do in the Black Hills and Badlands. Check out our events calendar for more awesome events in February and throughout the year.
