Marketfest 2023


Marketfest is fun summer festival that runs for seven weeks on Thursdays from mid-June until the end of July, RAIN OR SHINE!! As Marketfest celebrates its 33rd year, we hope to maintain the tradition of being a hometown, family-friendly event that showcases beautiful Downtown White Bear Lake.

Typically 3,000-5,000 visitors attended each night of Marketfest. In the upcoming season, we plan to again offer many of the features and events including free live music on two stages, classic car show, fun theme weeks, and lots of children's activities.
