New Ulm's biggest celebration happens mid-July every year. It features all sorts of music, including German-style bands, old-time, rock and country music. It's all under huge tents with ample tables and benches at the County Fairgrounds. Plenty of food and drink options appeal to all tastes. Craft shows, souvenir sales, children's games, fun run and the Grande Parade on Sunday make this a highlight of travel to Minnesota! "If you don't have fun here, we don't know what you're looking for!" Thursday's "pre-fest" event features a major classic rock act. Watch for details as to who will perform.
