Manitou Days

A summer festival celebrating White Bear Lake!

June 13 - July 4, 2019

Come to beautiful White Bear Lake to celebrate Manitou Days, a three-week summer festival showcasing some of the greatest things about this lakeside community.  For 53 years this annual summer ritual has been a favorite of locals and visitors.


The fun kicks-off with Marketfest and ends on the Fourth of July with a spectacular fireworks display to music over the lake. The Medallion Hunt, a local favorite, offers a $1,000 prize and bragging rights. One of our festival highlights is the Grand Parade, which travels through the scenic downtown and along Lake Avenue, ending at Memorial Beach where a local band will perform at the Beach Dance following the parade.


Ride your bike. Build a sand castle. Enter a fishing contest. Go for a pontoon ride. Shop Downtown White Bear Lake. Do yoga on the beach. Hunt for a medallion. Dance under the stars. Watch fireworks on the beach. With more than 60 events, there is something for everyone!
