New Brighton Stockyard Days

Signature Event

August 13, 2021 - August 15, 2021 New Brighton, MN

Yee-ha! August is time to rustle up some fun at New Brighton Stockyard days! The festival began in 1981 as a celebration of New Brighton’s heritage as a center for the cattle industry with stockyards, railroads and meatpacking plants. Today, it is a three-day round up of fun that culminates over the second weekend of August.  Although the event was canceled in 2020 due to Covid, we’re back in the saddle again for 2021! So, be sure to add this to your calendar now so you can join in on the fun!

As of the time of this post, only the 2021 dates were available with no event details. Please check back for more information.
