Christmoose Races New This Year At Christmas With The Chamber

Have you “herd”? There will be plenty of moose on the loose at the 2023 Christmas with the Chamber mixer and holiday event on Thursday, December 14th at the Dakota Event Center, 720 S Lamont Street in Aberdeen. The event begins at 5:15 with food, drink, and a night of epic moose racing. It is sponsored by Midco and hosted by the Chamber’s Diplomat Committee.


Local businesses and organizations can adopt (sponsor) a moose and dress them for the races as they wish. Wood moose will be provided to sponsors. The moose will race no more than six at a time and losing moose will move on and continue to compete until there are six first place heat winners for the championship race. There will also be a final losers bracket race for last place.


Attendees will be able to bet on races, based on odds, and take part in other activities. Non-winning betting slips will be entered into door prize drawings for prizes. All moose will be entered in a contest for a people’s choice award.


This is a unique event for Aberdeen, so you won’t want to miss out on the fun. Passes are $50 for Chamber members ($60 the day of) and $75 for non-Chamber members ($85 the day of). A reserved table of 8 may be purchased for $500. Moose adoption fees are $1,000. To reserve your space or sponsor a moose contact the Chamber at or 605-225-2860.
