About the Jaycees Feargrounds
The Jaycees Feargrounds is the Sioux Falls Jaycees’ haunted house project, and the largest fundraiser and volunteer driver for the Sioux Falls Jaycees chapter. The haunted house is located at the W.H Lyons Fairgrounds, and is open to the community every year in October.
The Sioux Falls Jaycees have run their Haunted House project since 1974. There have been many different versions of the haunt throughout its history, and currently exists as a 6,000-square-foot haunted house in the Fine Arts building on the fairgrounds. Previously known as the Sioux Falls Jaycees Haunted House, the haunted house rebranded as the Jaycees Feargrounds in 2019 as an effort to give the haunt a unique identity and keep the project relevant in today’s haunted attractions industry.
We Are A Fundraiser!
Did you know that our haunted house is actually a fundraiser? Each ticket purchased is a donation that goes back into the Sioux Falls community through Jaycees projects. These projects include the 4th of July fireworks celebration, a free fireworks show complete with kids activities that has an annual attendance of 6,000-9,000 people annually, and our Holiday Gifts for Kids program, serving over 400 families in need and providing gifts to over 1200 children in the 2019 season.
