Register For AgoraFest 2017 Here!

AgoraFest 2017 will be taking place on September 7th through the 10th at the picturesque Buffalo Ridge Resort in Gary, South Dakota.

Buffalo Ridge Resort has practically every option you could wish for, from newly remodeled hotel rooms (some including jacuzzi tubs), a modern RV park with full hookups including electrical, water, and sewer, and tent camping with a nearby modern bathhouse within close walking distance. All options include an event pass for one adult (age 12 and under are as usual free!). Also, included in the price this year is the Saturday evening meal, which will be catered by Buffalo Ridge and will be served on the outside courtyard (or in the ballroom in the case of weather). You can optionally add Sunday brunch to any option. Additional meals will be available al la carte at the Rock Room Bar & Grill, conveniently located on site.

Here are your choices – we look forward to seeing you at AgoraFest 2017!

The Family Suite: $195


The Family Suite has 9 bedrooms, 2 shared bathrooms, and can sleep up to 20. It has a full kitchen, living room, and a large outdoor deck on the 3rd floor. If you don’t mind sharing a bathroom this is a less expensive option than renting a hotel room. The price is per person for 3 nights and includes the Saturday meal. If you want to share a room with another person if possible please register at the same time and note you will be sharing a room. This option is a good deal so if you like this please register right away – these rooms will fill up fast!

Sunday Breakfast Buffet: $15 (Age 12 and under free!)

Bringing everyone together one last time on Sunday morning for a large breakfast has become somewhat of a tradition at AgoraFest, and we know how much you enjoy it, so we have arranged for Buffalo Ridge Resort to feed us! All you can eat fresh fruit, scrambled eggs with cheese, bacon, biscuits and gravy, toast, juice and coffee. Take your time and compare notes with your old (and new) friends on what you enjoyed the most about AgoraFest this year, and fill yer belly before you pack up and head back home! (This option can also be added to any of the above choices – there is a drop down menu.)
