Manitou Days

A summer festival celebrating White Bear Lake!

2020 Button Contest

When we kicked off the Manitou Days Button Contest in early March, we had no idea that our world would be turned upside down just a few weeks later. For this reason we are extending the Button Contest deadline to Monday, June 1, 2020 (and entries previously submitted with still be considered.)

The winning design will be used on Manitou Days publicity. Any student grade K-6 who lives in the WBL School district boundaries may enter the contest. Students/parents must email submissions electronically to, and provide the original if selected as a winner. The winner will receive a Grand Prize packaged donated by local businesses.

Manitou Days Button Photo Gallery

Help us build a photo gallery of buttons from past years of Manitou Days. Send us images of Manitou Days buttons that you collected over the years, and you will be entered into a drawing for prizes donated by local businesses. You many submit multiple photos, but they must each be from a different year. Photo submissions should be emailed to by Friday, June 30, 2020.
