Festival of classic cars and music revs up in Deadwood

DEADWOOD, S.D. – Kool Deadwood Nites, a celebration of classic cars and music, is resurrecting the golden age of the automobile in the northern Black Hills.

The four-day event began Thursday and features restored classic cars from the 1950s and 1960s, as well as music from the same era.

“Every night from Thursday all the way through Saturday we have free concerts on Main Street,” said Amanda Kille, director of marketing and sponsorship at the Deadwood Chamber of Commerce.

Kille says there will be plenty of cars to enjoy.

“The new welcome center, and the history and information parking lots are reserved for those classic cars, so those are the places you’re going to want to stop if you want to see all the registered classic cars,” Kille said.

Kool Deadwood Nites has been held in Deadwood for over 20 years. Organizers expect an average daily attendance of about 10,000, with the exception of Saturday, when over 15,000 visitors are expected to enjoy the event.
