It’s probably obvious that you’ll find plenty of incredible bands and bikes at the Largest Music Festival in Motorcycling®. What you might not know is there’s a ton of off-the-wall activities to do at the Sturgis Rally when you’re not ogling beautiful bikes or singing your heart out with your favorite band.

Throughout each afternoon at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, you’ve got the chance to watch or participate in some wild, freaky, seriously strange and utterly hilarious fun and games at locations throughout the Buffalo Chip property. These activities aren’t kid tested or mother approved, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t join in anyway! In fact, that’s an even better reason to participate.

Check out the different areas of the Sturgis Buffalo Chip property now to plan which events you’d like to attend. (Depending what you do, you may also want to arrange an alibi.)

Big Engine Bar

You don’t even have to enter through the main gate before getting a taste of all the silly shenanigans that happen at the Buffalo Chip. The free-access CrossRoads Sturgis

Motorcycle Rally destination at the West Gate is home to oodles of daytime attractions including daily bike shows, the Wall of Death and the Bikini Bike Wash. But it’s when you step inside the Big Engine Bar that things get a little bit wilder.

On the Big Engine Bar Stage, the DJ brings the rock, and master of ceremonies Tumbleweed brings the roll. Between onstage events and entertaining contests, he lets the fun move in whatever direction the wind takes him. 

Go head-to-head, beard-to-beard, or belly-to-belly with your friends at the bar, and Tumbleweed will send you off with prizes like free day passes, VIP passes, Top Shelf passes and more. 

A few of the contests you’ll find throughout the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally week at the Big Engine Bar:

  • Arm Wrestling Contest
  • Beer Belly Contest
  • Best Beard Contest
  • Buffalo Chip Trivia
  • Cherry Pie Eating Contest
  • Content Creator Olympics
  • Fake Orgasm Contest

Bikini Beach

The beer is cold, the water is warm and the games are hot at Bikini Beach! Take part in the silly and sexy spectacle as comedian Chris Trew hosts some of the Buffalo Chip’s most legendary games throughout each afternoon in the heart of the campground.

Build your own bikini, draw dirty doodles, and slip and slide in sticky whipped cream. Burp, lick and thrust your way to the top of the leaderboard, and you could be taking home some fantastic prizes including cool Twisted Tea gear, Buffalo Chip passes and COLD HARD CASH.

If you’d rather watch than participate, you’ll find plenty of room to post up in the sand, on a floaty or at the Milagro Cantina.

Daily Contests at Bikini Beach:

  • Air Sex World Championships
  • Beers & Burps Contest
  • Dick Pictionary
  • Frozen T-Shirt Contest
  • Homemade Bikini Contest
