Returning this year are Dave Virnala of New York Mills and John Perry of New York Mills. These musicians will be joined by New York Mills Chief of Police Jim Van Schaick and Pelican Rapids newspaper editor Lou Hoglund. Other artists not yet confirmed will be at the Festival as well.

Sponsoring the event are Dean and Kathy Simpson and Dean’s Country Market of Perham and New York Mills, and Dennis and Joan Happel and Happel Law Office of Perham.

The free and informal festivities begin at 7 p.m. No reservations are required and everyone is invited to attend.
