Manitou Days

A summer festival celebrating White Bear Lake!

It takes the talent, hard work and dedication of many people to successfully run 60+ events in three weeks! There is a core group of more than 20 volunteers who begin planning Manitou Days in January, and there are volunteers who only help with one project or event. But we all have a great time while creating a very special festival that brings our community together.


Planning committee meetings start in February 2019. If you would like to be a Manitou Days volunteer, let us know!
