Schedule of Events

Lots to do in '22! There are SO many reasons to visit Crookston Ox Cart Days and we have planned a summer festival like no other.  Again, we will offer this event at a solid $5 price point for buttons with ages 5 and under FREE because of our amazing sponsors. There is no place like a small town, no place like Minnesota and no place like home here in Crookston. There will be games, parades, fireworks, a car show, pageants, tournaments, contests, bouncy houses and entertainment including a street dance, live bands, and so much more! NOTE: OUR BACKUP LOCATION WILL BE THE CROOKSTON SPORTS CENTER IN CASE OF BAD WEATHER.
