Various Activities at Our Community Event

There are SO many reasons to visit Crookston Ox Cart Days! Like last year, we have planned a summer festival like no other.  Again, we offer this event at a solid $5 price point with ages 5 and under FREE because there is no place like a small town, no place like Minnesota and no place like home here in Crookston, Minnesota.  There will be games, parades, fireworks, a car show, pony rides, pageants, tournaments, contests, bouncy houses and live entertainment including a street dance, Crookston's Got Talent performances, and so much more!
