Festivals & Celebrations

The Brainerd Lakes Area is as well known for its many year-round festivals and celebrations as it is for its world-class golfing and fishing. During the year, communities throughout the Brainerd Lakes host fun, family-friendly events, ranging from summertime celebrations, including dozens of Fourth of July activities, to fall festivities, such as Oktoberfests or haunted happenings.
