Marketfest celebrates 30 years!

Thursdays, June 18 – July 30, 2020

6:00-9:00 pm

Each year Marketfest attracts locals and visitors who are interested in a lively, family-friendly atmosphere. 

More than 160 local businesses and vendors offer a wide variety of food, merchandise, art, and handcrafted goods. And there are numerous activities for children including a petting zoo and games.

There is live music on two stages: the Kowalski’s Gazebo Stage at 4th and Washington Square or the White Bear Mitsubishi 3rd street stage, in the parking lot at 3rd and Banning.

Stroll through the downtown streets visiting local merchants and artists. Relax and enjoy a summer evening with family and friends.

COVID-19 Update

COVID-19, commonly known as novel coronavirus, has become a more widespread concern. Our thoughts are with those affected, and we are watching the evolving situation closely.

At this time we are making plans for this summer’s Marketfest. We are carefully monitoring what is happening locally, as well as recommendations from the CDC, and we will adjust our plans accordingly as needed. Our top priority is to keep our guests and community safe and healthy. Updates will be posted on our website and social media.
