El Riad Shrine, located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. We would love for you to become a part of our philanthropic fraternity.

Shriners International is a fraternity based on fun, fellowship and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, truth and relief.

Rent The Venue

El Riad Shrine has first class facilities available to rent for both our shriners (at a reduced rate) and also for general public.

Shrine Events

Our units and clubs host many events that are open to the public while also organizing fundraisers for ways to earn money for our shrine and philanthropy.

Please join us in welcoming our new Imperial Potentate William (Bill) Bailey and First Lady Debby Bailey! Learn more about the Bailey family in this video, which debuted at Imperial Session.

Shriners International First Lady Debby Bailey’s Transforming Lives fundraising program shines a light on the amazing contributions Shriners Hospitals for Children brings to the field of #scoliosis care and supports these efforts. Learn more about her program and how you can make a difference!

Every year, Shriners Hospitals for Children selects two National Patient Ambassadors to represent the health care system’s patients. The ambassadors spend the year sharing their stories and the ways Shriners Hospitals for Children has made a dramatic difference in their lives. Meet Seth and Sydney and learn about their journeys with #scoliosis and the innovative care they receive through our healthcare system.
