Northern Hills Ag Fest is an agricultural festival in celebration of all things ranching and farming. The local agriculture industry is - and always has been - a cornerstone of the Sturgis community. Farmers and ranchers have long supported the area and contributed to its unique and friendly culture. Sturgis is lucky to boast kind, hard-working residents, many of whom have agricultural backgrounds that can be traced back generations.

The Ag Fest event is held in conjunction with the Meade County Fair and 4-H Achievement Days in July annually. It includes a free community BBQ sponsored by local businesses, followed by family-friendly agriculture competitions including Dress-a-Sheep, a Calf Scramble, and the ever-popular Mutton Bustin’ events!
