Woodbury Days

Woodbury Days, the city's biggest and most beloved summer festival, returns to Ojibway Park at the end of the month for its 41st year.

Check online for a detailed schedule of events, but don’t miss some perennial favorites: the business fair, the bingo tent, the petting zoo, the Taste of Woodbury, the beer tent…you get the idea. Party on, Woodbury. We’ll see you at the park!  Read more about Woodbury Days

History on Wheels

The seventh annual 10,000 Lakes Concours d’Elegance happens this July at the Excelsior Commons. The lakeside park will play host to one-of-a-kind historic cars (including many of their owners dressed in period garb and ready to chat with show-goers), boats and motorcycles. Guests can also shop at vendor booths, listen to live music, munch on treats from food stalls, and visit the kids’ zone. (And no need to worry about parking—grab a shuttle from Excelsior Elementary School or Minnetonka High School.)  Read more about History on Wheels
