At the Heart of Every Family Tradition Lies a Great Experience Worth Repeating

No matter when you decide to visit, you’ll likely find an event happening in the area. We host signature events like the Pequot Lakes Stars and Stripes Days in July. Have you been to the best St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Minnesota?! You’ll find the parade in Crosslake. How about kickin’ your boots up at Lakes Jam—the Lakes Area’s biggest country and rock fest. Other local businesses and communities host festivals, live music, and even fireworks. Make these popular events a family tradition.
