Summer Fun in Downtown White Bear Lake

Marketfest is a fun summer festival held on Thursdays 6:00 to 9:00 pm from mid-June until the end of July.


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.

Each week 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.
