We are coming off of some of the most successful Crookston Ox Cart Days in the 30 year history of the festival! This is the 30th year of the small town festival that has had an interesting background. We started out as Pioneer Days and have evolved into the Ox Cart Days Festival as Crookston boasts of having the world's largest Ox Cart! Anyway you break it down, the goal has always been to boost the local economy and show off our small Northwest Minnesota community while we host the biggest party in the area.
The fun begins on Monday August 12th and this year goes the entire week until the 18th. We are looking forward to seeing new and past visitors as you celebrate class reunions, family reunions or just want to make US your destination this summer. We are a small town with BIG plans that include YOU!
The best thing about this week long festival? It comes with a $5 price tag! That's right, most of our festivities will be covered with a $5 button, these will be available starting in June and be sold at local businesses through the festival. There will be some events that require a charge, please look for the $ sign next to those events on the listing.
