Planning an Event
Why Choose Huron
Where you plan a meeting is almost as important as how you plan it. Fortunately, Huron can satisfy both needs. Huron is nestled in the center of eastern South Dakota and has an atmosphere of summer fun and excitement in the midst of quiet rural surroundings.
Huron has long been a popular location as a meeting site by members of many organizations. Our central location, where US Highway 14 and SD Highway 37 intersect, is within two hours driving time of 75% of South Dakota's population and within 5 hours of larger cities such as Minneapolis, MN; Lincoln, NE; and Fargo, ND. This convenient location increases attendance and saves money!
One of Huron’s proudest features is the Huron Event Center. The people of Huron invite you to come and experience the hometown hospitality in our meeting and convention facility. Bridging together the renovated Crossroads Hotel and Convention Center with the Huron Arena and Exposition Center, the Huron Event Center connects these two facilities with over 23,000 square feet of new meeting space and prefunction area. In total, over 34,000 square footage of meeting, banquet and exposition space is available all under one roof. Huron is ready to host your next event!
With seventeen locations to choose from, our meeting and convention facilities can accommodate groups of 10 to 400 at a full range of levels and prices to suit every small to mid size meeting. There are over 438 guest rooms in Huron. The Convention Center offers nearly 10,000 square feet of meeting space. To learn more about each facility, see Event Facilities.
The Huron Regional Airport, located just north of town, is serviced by Great Lakes Airlines. With Great Lakes Airlines you can fly into Huron from virtually anywhere in the world with several daily flights to Denver, Colorado.
After the meetings and events come to an end, take advantage of the parks and recreational ventures. Huron boasts three golf courses, miniature golf, paddle and bumper boats, a movie theater, museums, and much more. Huron in the summertime brings art festivals, antique shows, concerts in the park, and the South Dakota State Fair. Come and see!
