Sturgis Rally Week Plan
Friday, August 6

  • A big canopy tent holding about 300 people will be set up in the morning. All DBA bikers will set camp around the tent to be together instead of scattered all around the campground. The tent will be the central place for everything “like thumb tapping on the center of the palm”.

  • DBA officially starts when the tent goes up Friday morning. People will be arriving from all over the country, setting camp and getting settled down for the night.

Friday, August 13

  • Big tent comes down
  • DBA officially ends
  • But if you wanted to, you could stay until Sturgis ends on Sunday, August 16.  I want to emphasize that DBA events are only from Friday, August 6 to Friday August 13.

There will be plenty of things to do . . .

  • Bike tours during the day
  • Go to the town of Sturgis
  • Entertainment every night
The Elkview campground, itself, will have lots of activities going on their grounds, also. You will be assured there will not be a dull moment no matter where you are . . .

Examples of campground entertainment . . .

  • Happy hour every night
  • Different bands on the grounds every night
  • You could either hop on a shuttle bus to town to go shopping, bar hopping, or just to sit back, watch things unfold beyond your eyes.
