Wild Rice Festival

NEWSFLASH!! Our festival was selected to represent Minnesota in the book published this spring by National Geographic, Great American Eating Experiences! You’ll find us mentioned in the section that highlights food festivals in each state.Great American Eating Experiences

This video was made by Robert Rice, owner of Pow Wow Grounds Cafe in Minneapolis. The Little Earth Ricing Camp guided young Native Americans in learning the traditional wild rice harvesting methods.
