Come join us for our 37th annual Stockyard Days Festival in beautiful New Brighton, MN.

Update - Because of road construction on 35W and the diversion of traffic to Old Hwy 8 in our city, we have, in cooperation with the City of New Brighton and Public Safety, changed the parade from Thursday August 8th to Saturday August 3rd at 3pm.

Starting with the golf tournament "The Corral Open" and ending with the Coronation of our 2019 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.
