Get Your Fall Fix: Minnesota's Top Festivals to Experience!
Fall in Minnesota, there's really nothing like it! You've got the vibrant fall foliage, crisp air, and a plethora of awesome festivals to choose from. Since you're into travel and camping, these events could make for some fantastic weekend getaways in your Mini-T Campervan. Here are some top fall festivals in Minnesota that you won't want to miss:
Twin Cities Oktoberfest - Held at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, this is a two-day extravaganza of German food, music, and, of course, beer. It's usually scheduled in late September to early October.
Apple Festival at Aamodt's Apple Farm - Located in Stillwater, this one's perfect for apple picking, tractor rides, and hot apple cider. The festival runs through several weekends in September and October.
North Shore Readers & Writers Festival - If you're into literature and scenic drives, head up to Grand Marais in November. It's an intellectual feast set against the stunning backdrop of Lake Superior.
Ely Harvest Moon Festival - Held in September, this festival showcases arts and crafts and offers plenty of food and entertainment options. Ely is also a gateway to the Boundary Waters, so bring your camping gear!
New Ulm Oktoberfest - Another top spot for Oktoberfest celebrations. New Ulm goes all out with parades, Germanic music, and authentic cuisine.
Pumpkin and Chili Fest at the Minnesota Zoo - This family-friendly event in Apple Valley is perfect for some laid-back weekend fun, typically held in late September or early October.
Hastings Rivertown Days Festival - Held in July, I know it's not exactly a fall festival, but it's worth mentioning for its arts and crafts, car shows, and general sense of community.
Stillwater Harvest Fest - Giant pumpkins, chili cook-off, and live music make this an excellent choice for a fall weekend.
Scarecrow Festival in Mahnomen - Usually held in late September, this unique festival features a scarecrow-building contest along with plenty of food and live entertainment.
Alexandria's Apple Fest - Another great apple festival, featuring apple picking, pie contests, and plenty of family activities.
Each of these festivals has its own unique flavor and could be a fantastic addition to your fall travel itinerary. And hey, given the fuel efficiency of your Mini-T Campervan, hitting up multiple festivals in a single season wouldn't be out of the question!
Enjoy your fall, and happy travels!
