Area Events

Explore the Brainerd Lakes Area and its world-class Minnesota events

All year long there are events being held in the Brainerd Lakes Area—many of them are world-class events which draw thousands of people from around the globe to Brainerd, Minnesota—and then there are hundreds of other events, activities and attractions that make Brainerd a really special and fun place to visit.

Major summer events include Lakes Jam music festival which is held in June, the American Celebration and several other fantastic 4th of July festivities, and in August the Lucas Oil Nationals are held at Brainerd International Raceway. 

Winter is no exception and Minnesota's playground does not roll up the sidewalk. In January the infamous $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza—the worlds largest live release charitable ice fishing tournament—draws more than 10,000 people to the area. It's a winter experience that all winter, outdoor and fishing enthusiasts ought to try. In February be sure to attend the Frozen Fore Winter Weekend. This great Minnesota event serves up three days of live music, ice golf, food, a frozen flop and so much more.
