Summer Festivals in Sauk Centre, Pelican Rapids, and Long Prairie

Summer Festivals in Sauk Centre, Pelican Rapids, and Long Prairie

One bank. Three towns. Minnesota National Bank knows how to do community.

Summer is the ultimate season for outdoor activities and events. There is so much to do and people should be taking full advantage of the beautiful weather and community events.

All three towns, Sauk Centre, Pelican Rapids, and Long Prairie host citywide festivals/fairs at some point in the summer!

Sauk Centre hosts its 43rd Annual Sinclair Lewis Days on July 14-21 this summer. Each day of the fair has something special planned. Some examples of what you’d find include music, fireworks, parades, ice cream socials, craft fairs, street dances, car shows, and a River Bats water ski show! This isn’t even half.  There are tons of activities for all ages.


Pelican Rapids hosts its Pelican Fest for two days this summer, July 12th and 13th. It has formerly been called “Turkey Days”. This event is also great for all ages, with activities such as a parade, turkey BBQ, beer garden, helicopter ride, ice cream social, and of course, a turkey race. 

Last but not least, Long Prairie will host the Todd City Fair on August 14th-18th.  Join in the fun! There will be food stands, carnival rides, animals, bike shows, games, music, and more.

All three fairs are more than one day long, so there is no excuse to miss, you can bet our staff will be in attendance!
