Gold Camp Jubilee


Sunday 7/3/22 – Monday 7/4/22

In 1926 Homestake Mining Company threw a party to celebrate 50 years of mining called the Golden Jubilee. In memory of that amazing event we now organize the Gold Camp Jubilee. This festival celebrates our iconic golden history of mining, and our amazing community.

Join us for the best fireworks show in the Black Hills over the impressive Open Cut with amazing echos and booms. Enjoy vendors, live entertainment, family-friendly activities, music, food, history and mining talks and events and the small town charm of Historic Main Street!

Frequently Asked: “Can you watch the fireworks from Main Street?” Not exactly, but you can get a great view from Manuel Brother’s Park and the parking lot of the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center, as well as all of Mill Street and the hill side next to Subway restaurant. If you can see the Open Cut you’ll be able to see the fireworks.
