Family Day at National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic Features Free Admission for Children 16 and Younger


First PREMIER Bank and PREMIER Bankcard sponsoring a day of family activities

The 2024 Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic will wrap up with a special family day on Sunday, March 3, at the Denny Sanford PREMIER Center in Sioux Falls, SD. Thanks to First PREMIER Bank and PREMIER Bankcard, Family Day includes free admission for kids ages 16 and under. First PREMIER Bank CEO Dana Dykhouse said PREMIER wanted to sponsor the day because it honors a timeless family tradition for many of its nearly 2,000 employees. 

“A lot of us grew up in this region and the pheasant hunting opener is like another holiday when family and friends come together,” said Dykhouse. “We partnered with Pheasants and Quail Forever so families could come to this national event and celebrate, as well as learn more about the need for conservation and preservation of this tradition for generations to come.”

Families will find treat stations, fun games, photo booths and hands-on activities for all ages throughout the show floor. The first 500 families through the door will also receive a free fly & fetch launching pheasant for the family dog provided by Spunky Pup and PREMIER.
