15th annual Celebration!
Saturday, September 15, 2018

With a special performance by Bluedog, a local Native American blues band, 4:30-6:00pm
Wild Rice Festival

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.

We are thrilled to once again have event partners
Pow Wow Grounds Cafe, Gibbs Farm and Northland Visions at our event.

We are also happy to have as sponsors this year, our friends at Half Price Books, Great Southern Bank and Skyline Electric, and a generous donation from Festival devotee, Ken Malmstedt.
You, too, can be one of our valued sponsors in 2018! Contact us about the possibilities. Here’s a copy of our sponsorship brochure. Sponsorship Opportunities brochure

Our festival was selected for inclusion in National Geographic’s 2016 book, Great American Eating Experiences! You’ll find us mentioned in the section that highlights food festivals in each state and we represent Minnesota.


VOLUNTEERS are always needed and most welcome, not just at the
Wild Rice Festival but at other Parks and Rec. events as well.
