Maple Grove Days, July 14-18, 2021

Maple Grove Days is one of the biggest and best festivals in the northwest metro featuring five days of fun! Packed with activities for every age group, it's a perfect time to explore the Maple Grove area and get to know the community. Maple Grove Days is run by the Maple Grove Community Organization, and the festival runs concurrently with the Arbor Lakes Art Fair at The Shoppes at Arbor Lakes. Minneapolis Northwest is a proud sponsor of this mid-summer celebration!

Art fair


Maple Grove Days events are spread throughout the city at select locations, including the Town Green bandshell, Maple Grove Community Center, Central Park, and Main Street, as well as local businesses like OMNI Brewing Co., the American Legion, and Lynde's Greenhouse. This year's celebration includes a number of your favorite events, such as the bed races down Main Street, the duct tape fashion show, parade, Lions corn feed, classic car show, fireworks, and live music. Some events may be modified due to the pandemic. This year also features a Virtual Art Contest for kids ages 11-18, and you can expect Saturday's fireworks to be steamed live.

Maple Grove Days kicks off Wednesday evening with live music at Town Green as part of its Sounds of Summer concert series. Kick back and enjoy a performance by local favorite Mick Sterling and a Huey Lewis and the News tribute band! Sing along to classic hits such as "The Power of Love," "The Heart of Rock & Rock," and "It's All Right." This concert will be part of Beyond the Yellow Ribbon, which honors active military families, and veterans and their families.
