Festivals and Major Events
In Cook County, Minnesota, we know how to have a good time. And we have no shortage of fun Minnesota things to do. Among the thousands–that’s not a typo–of happenings we host each year are over a dozen festivals and major events. Whether your definition of “good time” is discovering the vibrancy of Ojibwe culture, chowing down on fish burgers, or dancing the night away, we’ve got a big day for you.
