The event is normally held in Rochester, Minnesota but because of the Covid-19 pandemic restrictions in place there they decided to bring things across the border to Sioux Falls.

  • The current Covid restrictions in place in Minnesota as of April 1, 2021state that venues with occupant capacity greater than 500 may increase patron count as follows:
  • For seated indoor venues: the venue may operate with an additional 15% of the occupant capacity above 500, with a maximum capacity not to exceed 3,000 for the entire venue (seated venues must have assigned seating, and patrons must remain seated).
  • For non-seated indoor venues: the venue may operate with an additional 10% of the capacity above 500, with a maximum capacity not to exceed 1,500 for the entire venue.
  • Masks required. No food service between 11 p.m. and 4 a.m.

Beginning April 1 in Minnesota gyms, personal fitness and yoga studios, or martial arts spaces with sufficient normal occupant capacity may exceed 250 people per applicable percentage limits and guidance.
