Plan to get to Brookings a few hours early to soak in all the local favorites before jamming out at the Dana J. Dykehouse Stadium. To start off you afternoon right head downtown to one of the many local boutiques to make sure you are properly styled for the show! While on Main Ave stop into Agua Fresh for a refreshing smoothie to accompany your afternoon exploring.

To make sure you arrive at the concert with a full belly head over to Craft Chophouse & Lounge for a delicious meal using Brookings’ freshest, homegrown ingredients. Compliment your meal with the restaurants number 1 best seller, a piece of homemade cheesecake!

Take a turn down Medary Avenue to make your way to the South Dakota State University campus. Take the scenic route through campus to get a look at the Coughlin Campanile, a 165 ft tall local landmark and Brookings skyline staple.  Follow the sound of the music and glow of the stadium lights to make it to the concert and enjoy a night full of fun in the home of the Jackrabbits!


After a night full of singing and dancing you can wrap up your time in Brookings with the perfect R&R, brunch from Cook’s Kitchen. We would recommend their face-sized chocolate chip pancakes!

Whether you are from out of town and heading home, or are local, a strong cup of coffee is the perfect way to get you through the day after a late night. Stop by Cottonwood Coffee for that extra pep in your step!
