Turtle Fest

June 12-16, 2019

With our International Turtle Races being one of the highlights of the summer, we’d be silly to not have an entire festival based around our favorite creatures! Each June, our community comes together to celebrate summer. Like most communities, our summer festival is based around one of our local icons – ours just happen to be turtles. Turtle Fest features a wide variety of events and activities to suit the whole family! Whether you are up for racing turtles or watching the grand parade, there is something for everyone!

2019 Turtle Fest $500 Medallion Found in Arvig Park

Congratulations to our 2019 Turtle Fest $500 Medallion Hunt winner Briella Kiley from Sartell, MN. Briella found the medallion under a bench in the Arvig Park complex which is located on the north side of town. The clues were:

  • Clue #1 – Name your sport. Perham has it all. 
  • Clue #2 – You have to look down before you look up.
  • Clue #3 – You can get here from either direction. 
  • Clue #4 – Perham is known to be a very generous town, especially for what gets donated. Now sit down for a rest and focus on the first 3 clues.

Congratulations Briella and have fun shopping in Perham!
