Arnegard Spud Fest Sept. 9
August 30, 2023 | View PDF
Arnegard and the surrounding community will be celebrating the long potato-growing heritage of the area. The Arnegard Spud Fest will be held at Arnegard’s Nelson Park on Saturday, Sept. 9. from 11 a.m.-8 p.m.
With an early McKenzie County Fair causing it to be difficult for locals to grow produce and show off what they have grown and with the scarcity of area harvest festivals, the Arnegard North Dakota Park District will hold its first annual Arnegard Spud Fest to celebrate the harvest and the area’s rich agricultural heritage.
Along with the usual harvest festival festivities, the 2023’s Arnegard Spud Fest will have food, live music, vendors, face painting, a style show, free games, crafts, hayrides, pumpkins, raffles, potato sack races, and open horseshoe and cornhole tournaments.
There will also be judging of produce, canned goods, and baked goods. All produce and canned goods presented for judging are to be entered at the park on the evening of Sept. 8 and baked goods are to be entered on the morning of Sept. 9.
Updates and times and events can be seen on the Arnegard Park District’s Facebook page.
