Come join us for our 36th annual Stockyard Days Festival in beautiful New Brighton, MN.

We are currently planning this year's festival and can assure you that all those events you have enjoyed in the past years will again be a part of this years event. Starting with the golf tournament "The Corral Open" and ending with the Coronation of our 2018 Ambassadors this years festival brings our community together like no other event. And sandwiched between these events we manage to fit in a softball tournament, the Medallion Hunt, a kiddie parade and movie night, a Grande Parade, two street dances with top name bands, car show and swap meet, a karaoke contest, a duck race and three days of food and craft vendors at the scenic Long Lake Regional Park. Oh, and the finish of the 120 mile Antique Car Run featuring cars that were built before 1909.

Most events are free and held at the Long Lake Regional Park, 1500 Old Hwy 8. There is a $3 parking fee.

803 Old Hwy 8 NW | New Brighton, MN 55112

A highlight of the festival is a parade at 11 a.m. on Saturday on Lake Drive, starting at Target and ending just short of Main Street. The parade has become more popular each year, with celebrity grand marshals and guest emcees, floats, local organizations and businesses, and the Lino Lakes Ambassadors riding on the city float. Other popular events include our family movie night at the park (this year we will be featuring the movie “Sing”), the Quad Chamber of Commerce Business Expo, American Legion Family Picnic, Officer Shawn Silvera 5K Memorial Run at the YMCA, Petting Zoo, a Penny Carnival, live music and much more! The coronation is held on Sunday of that weekend to crown the next year’s Miss Lino Lakes Ambassadors. Each year something new and different brings families out to enjoy the festivities.

7850 Lake Drive | Lino Lakes, MN 55014 | P: (651) 815-2750
