Perfect Vision: See yourself at the biggest small town festival in Minnesota!

Everyone Is Invited

We are coming off of some of the most successful Crookston Ox Cart Days festivals in its 30-year history and we're looking forward to our 31st year in 2020! The small town festival has an interesting history first starting out as Pioneer Days and evolving into Ox Cart Days as Crookston boasts 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 in 2020 runs Monday, August 17th thru Sunday, August 23rd.  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 coming 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. Buttons will be available starting in June and will be sold at local businesses through the start of the festival.  There will be some events that require a charge, please look for the $ sign next to those events on the listing.
