Moose Madness

Moose Madness is a family-focused celebration of all things moose in Grand Marais, MN. 

Find Lodging

Moose Madness Festival encourages families to unplug and play. Reconnect by doing the planned activities, enjoying the outdoors or learning a few facts about our celebrated mascot. Moosey memories are waiting to be made! Throughout Moose Madness weekend, there are events for everyone. Activities range from the athletic to the artistic with the weekend centered on earning and spending “moose bucks.” Kiddos can earn moose bucks by participating in scavenger hunts, races, and arts activities all around town. Moose bucks can then be spent on prizes at Moose Headquarters aka Grandma Ray’s. In addition to the activities at Moose Headquarters there are fun things to do all around town! 

The Moose News & Tribune is your guide to the entire weekend with the first clue to the Grand Marais State Bank Moose Medallion Hunt, opportunities to earn Moose Bucks, a full schedule of events and so much more. Take a peek:
