September 20 - September 26
The World Archery Championships is the most prestigious World Archery event next to the Olympics, held at spectacular locations around the world in odd years.
This is only the fourth time that this event has taken place in the United States. Previous U.S. host locations include:
- New York City, New York – 2003
- Los Angeles, California – 1983
- Valley Forge National Park, Pennsylvania – 1969
The most elite archers in the World are selected by each World Archery member-nation to compete in male and female, recurve and compound divisions. Many of the Olympic archers will compete in this year’s event, with some of them having recently been crowned Olympic Champions in Tokyo.
The qualification rounds will take place at the NFAA Easton Yankton Archery Center (September 21 – 23). The Finals Rounds will take place at Riverside Park (September 24 – 26).
There is no admission fee, and all are welcome to attend.
Friday – Sunday will also feature “Archery Fest” surrounding the finals venue in Riverside Park. Three days jam-packed with live entertainment, food vendors, South Dakota-made products and a beer garden.
You won’t want to miss this opportunity to welcome the World to Yankton.
