Liquor License Lottery
Per the 2020 United States Census numbers, the City of Sioux Falls has 16 off-sale liquor licenses and 7 on-sale liquor licenses available to be issued.
Previously the City maintained a waiting list for these license types because there were more applicants than licenses. In March of 2022, City Council approved an ordinance to allow the City to conduct lottery drawings for both off-sale and on-sale licenses upon one or more of either license type becoming available.
The liquor license lottery applications will be accepted beginning at 8:00 a.m. on July 7, 2022 with the deadline being 5:00 pm. on - July 21, 2022. No applications will be received prior 8:00 a.m. on July 7th, 2022 nor after 5:00 p.m. on July 21, 2022. The applications must be submitted in person to the Licensing Office, City Hall, 224 West Ninth Street, Sioux Falls, SD 57104.
