Join us August 16-22, 2021!

Clear your calendars, book your Crookston hotels and get ready for Minnesota's biggest festival in a small town!

 

We're ready to come back bigger and better than ever before in 2021 after we rose to the challenge for the third week in August 2020. While some of our organizers were still able to host their events in a safe and social distancing way, we want to get back to crowds of people, music in the streets, downtown entertainment and visitors from near and far. We'll be bringing our previously-scheduled entertainment with a circus-themed Thursday, Snake Oil hard rock tribute band street dance Saturday, plus bands, food and activities to round out seven days of fun for Ox Cart Days 2021!
