    Northfield, Minnesota’s annual Defeat of Jesse James Days is a wild and wooly community festival that revolves around one of the most dramatic episodes of the Old West, the Great Northfield, Minnesota Bank Raid of 1876.

    Held each year on the weekend after Labor Day, it celebrates the courage of a town that defied Jesse James and the James-Younger Gang and won. Horses thunder down the historic main street and bullets fly during the many authentic bank raid re-enactments that tell this amazing story. It is street theater at its best.

    In addition, the celebration features professional rodeo, Northfield Arts Guild Riverfront Fine Art Festival, car shows, parades, great music, great food and plenty of activities for the family. Four days of non-stop fun, history and fellowship in an idyllic, historic river town worthy of a Norman Rockwell canvas.

    Jesse James Bike Tour September 9th from 7 am - 5pm. Enjoy the great outdoors and meet new people on one of five routes, each featuring aid stations and refreshments. All proceeds from the ride benefit community projects. More information can be found at
