Barnesville, Minnesota Potato Days Festival

As Minnesotans, the Barnesville, Minnesota Potato Days Festival in August is where we will be. We'll enjoy two days of potato activities and small town hospitality. Barnesville Potato Days has often been selected as one of the best summer festivals in the nation and every year about 14,000 potato lovers from across the country descend on this town of 2,200 to enjoy family fun. Some of the fun includes:

  • Miss Tator Tot Pageant
  • Events that include picking, peeling, carving, car races, cooking, sacking and sculpting
  • Potato Cook-Off
  • Sampling Norwegian potato lefse, potato pancakes, french fries, potato sausage, potato soup, German potato dumplings, rommegrot, and potato chip cookies.
  • Mashed potato wrestling
