Taking Over Rapid City

Freedom cannot be stopped! The response to FreedomFest 2021 has been overwhelming so far, and we are so excited to welcome so many attendees to the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Because of this overwhelming response, we have already sold out of our initial hotel room blocks. But never fear! The FreedomFest Team is heading to Rapid City in early April to look at more hotels and acquire new hotel rooms for our attendees.

So for now, you have two options:

Option 1. If you wish to book now, call Black Hills Vacations at 800-400-6194 to book directly at a Rapid City hotel.

Option 2. Wait for the new hotel room blocks and we will notify everyone of the new hotel options as soon as we secure them.

No matter where you stay, there is free parking at the civic center, free hotel shuttles, plus our own FreedomFest shuttles. Not to mention Uber, Lyft and taxis. You will be able to get to the conference!

We will have more detailed information on hotels, transportation including rental car options, shuttles and more, shortly. Please stay tuned!
