Turtle Fest

June 13-17, 2018

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!

  • EVENT UPDATE!  The Carnival scheduled for Saturday has been moved from the Arvig Parking lot to the back/lower gym at the Perham Area Community Center.
  • ALL CITY RUMMAGE SALE: Saturday, June 16. Click here to view the map.
  • PARADE: Parade starts at 6:30 on Friday night. Scroll to the bottom of this page to view the parade route.
