May 6-8, 2016
Celebrated since 1963, this is the fifty-first return of the “First Festival of Spring.”
This three day weekend Festival truly has activities for everyone. Carnival games and exciting rides are featured at the Knights of Columbus Fairgrounds. From a flower and plant sale to culturally diverse musical performances, baseball games, craft and flea market sales, children’s activities and the “Hispanic Festival” you can find a little of everything at the Eagan Center. Good food abounds at all Festival locations. The Tot Wheels Parade for our youngest participants and the official “Big Parade” beginning at the Eagan Center highlight the weekend.
The Festival culminates on Sunday with the crowning of the Valley of Flowers Queen and her Court at the Knights of Columbus Pavilion following the grand parade.
