It's a crazy, crazy world we live in, and one way or another, it’s going to be a historic year in Sturgis. While virtually every other motorcycle rally and musical event has been cancelled, Sturgis is poised to be the lone wolf of major events this summer. We’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the situation since the Sturgis City Council voted yes on holding the 80th anniversary rally. Since then, we’ve been working diligently to dig up as much information as possible about the 2020 Sturgis Rally which we’ve chronicled in a series of articles for you, from How to Do Sturgis Safely in 2020 to Sturgis Dirt: Off the Beaten Path Places to Visit in the Black Hills to features on how to prep for the rally and Sturgis laws. Now we’ve dug even deeper to bring you this 2020 Sturgis Schedule of Events, from concerts to bike shows to benefit rides. J&P Cycles Sturgis Retail Center in the heart of the rally action at 1650 Lazelle Street is now open for business, too, so be sure to stop by and say hello, check out the latest and greatest motorcycle parts and accessories on the market, and have them installed on-the-spot if so desired. We’re also looking forward to giving away a wicked 2020 Harley Low Rider S along with our good friends at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip on Wednesday, Aug. 12, on the Buffalo Chip’s main stage in between the Lit and Drowning Pool concerts. Let you in on a little secret. You can still sign up to win this bad boy. Click here to find out how.
