RAPID CITY, S.D. – Box Elder held their inaugural Boxtoberfest on Saturday, October 15.


Img 0265Boxtoberfest kicked off with the tapping of the first keg. There were also a cornhole tournament, a food truck from Wall Meat, a polka band and, of course, a lot of beer. Hairy Cow Brewing Company was there to show off some of their brews to get people excited about the business coming to town. Construction is expected to start in the spring, with the hope that it’ll be finished by the fall.

Future of Boxtoberfest:

This year, there were about 150 people that turned out for the event. The hope is that this is only the beginning and Boxtoberfest will continue to grow.

“It was our first annual. So we’re hoping that the word will get out and they’ll say, ‘Wow, that was a lot of fun, and our next one will be even bigger.’ And of course, we’ll plan it at our new event center, The Box, over at the courtyard.”, said Mayor Larry Larson.
