General Information

The 35th annual Hills Alive festival has been postponed to July 17-18, 2021.  It will take place in Memorial Park in Rapid City, SD.

Hills Alive is a free summer music festival held the third weekend in July in Memorial Park, Rapid City (directions) featuring 20+ of the best Christian artists on two stages over two days. There is also a KidsZone with outreach ministry, on-stage shows, bouncy village, and children's tent. Several delicious food vendors are on site, as well as Merchandise vendors and non-profit booths. This is a family-friendly event and a huge outreach ministry in the area because it's FREE and it's in the middle of downtown Rapid City. Hills Alive brings in 20,000-25,000 people each day! Make plans to come next summer to the 35th annual Hills Alive! 

Hills Alive is free to attend! There will be a free-will offering taken for those who wish to support the festival.
