It’s been a while since we’ve had an off-the-topic fun Byte. So in honor of my favorite summer festival (Grand Ol’ Day, which was last Sunday) I thought I’d point of some great sites for making summer plans. Sorry to my non-Minnesotan subscribers – maybe you can look at this as proof that we’re not cold all year long – in fact we can get quite humid!
The Star Tribune lists festivals organized by Metro & Outstate and then alphabetically by city and then at the bottom of the list by date. So, it’s not the prettiest list – but it appears to be inclusive.
Explore Minnesota has a searchable database of events. You can search by date, location, keyword, you name it. They also list a few cyber specials.
Fesitvals.com is an international site for finding festivals – for any of you who are looking for a good excuse to leave the country.
Minnesota Federation of County Fairs lists the dates for all 95 county fairs in Minnesota! This is a great place to start if you’re looking for bingo and homemade jams.
