Getting Licensed - for the 2021, 81st Sturgis Rally & Black Hills Rally

'The Courts have stated that the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is a pluralistic endeavor promoted by multiple organizations.'  
This Rally is Owned By The People, you can setup shop where you want (there are lots of places for rent) and sell what you want (within SD State/County/City laws) and you don't need a 'Special Rally Permit', you simply need to be licensed for where ever you do business as any legal business. 

Today, there are Sturgis Rally events from the Northern Black Hills to the Southern Black Hills. Once you have determined where your Vending spot will be, then you'll know which licensing you will need.
