A PROUD WINTER TRADITION IN MINNESOTA: The Great Northern

A PROUD WINTER TRADITION IN MINNESOTA: The Great Northern

The International Eelpout Festival takes place in Walker every February

More than 10,000 people gather in Walker each year for this three-day party on Leech Lake. The annual event is, by name, a celebration of a distinct and not-so-pretty bottom-feeding fish. The festival includes a fishing contest, but is ultimately so much more. There are auto races on the ice, a rugby game, a kid’s perch contest, an eelpout nugget fish fry, and a serious beer pong tournament.

10 days of outdoor winter events: one big celebration.

Minneapolis and Saint Paul’s premier winter events have joined forces to celebrate the best of the season together.
