The South Dakota Democratic Party expects tickets to sell out for McGovern Day, its largest annual fundraiser.
Executive director Zach Crago expects to fill all 720 seats in the Sioux Falls hall on Saturday.
The event honors retiring U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson. Johnson has also served in the state Legislature and the U.S. House of Representatives.
The agenda includes a workshop on "likeable leadership" for Democratic candidates and a luncheon with candidates for governor.
A VIP reception and a dinner wrap up the day. The keynote speaker is U.S. Sen. Jon Tester, a Democrat from Montana who is also a rancher and farmer.
The event is named after the late U.S. Senator and Congressman George McGovern, who Crago called the "father of the state Democratic party."
