Woodbury Days

Woodbury Days, the city's biggest and most beloved summer festival, returns to Ojibway Park at the end of the month for its 41st year. Organizers report that, last year, almost 300 businesses participated in the event and more than 30,000 people attended. Check online for a detailed schedule of events, but don’t miss some perennial favorites: the business fair, the bingo tent, the petting zoo, the Taste of Woodbury, the beer tent…you get the idea. Party on, Woodbury. We’ll see you at the park! 

Irish Fair in St. Paul

Preserve, cultivate and celebrate the rich Irish heritage along the Mississippi River by delving into authentic dishes, listening to live music and watching Irish dancers perform. All proceeds go to the Minnesota Irish cultural community and the supporting new immigrant groups through the help of the Legacy Fund.

Minnesota State Fair

Keep it classic this year and start your morning off with Tom Thumb donuts or shake it up with all new DIY donut flights from the Hangar. Whether you’re visiting the award-winning livestock barns or taking a turn on the giant slide, be sure to keep sunscreen applied and one hand free at all times for that next new confection on-a-stick.
