March 18-19 and March 25-26 2022

​​Schmeckfest has been an annual celebration in Freeman, South Dakota since 1959. ​All proceeds benefit Freeman Academy. ​Find out more about the campus.

After two crazy years without the traditional Schmeckfest experience, planning for Schmeckfest 2022 is ramping up.  Tickets for the musical, Matilda, and for the meal will go on sale in late November.


If you want Preferred Pioneer Seating, please use our online PDF form to submit your seating request.  Preferred Pioneer Seating forms will be accepted through October 31, 2021.


Please be sure to mark your calendars for the Schmeckfest weekends:

Don Schenk, whose father graduated from Freeman Academy class of 1914, has generously offered to match dollar-for-dollar to $50,000 toward revenue lost from Schmeckfest 2021.
