Black Hills Polkapalooza

September 6, 2019 - September 8, 2019

POLKAPALOOZA is CANCELLED for 2020! Join us in 2021 for this exciting event, hosted by the Mount Rushmore Resort at Palmer Gulch, home to Mount Rushmore KOA and Mount Rushmore Lodge. Polkapalooza is a summertime favorite for travelers and locals alike. At only $5 per person per night for admission, Polkapalooza is a bargain. Each night from 4:00-10:00 P.M. you can sample some authentic German food and drink, listen to two great Polka bands, and show off your dancing moves.
