Welcome to Faribault. The festival in 2022 will be in its 14th year, undergoing many changes. This year the festival will be Friday Night and Saturday Night in Teepee Tonka park near downtown Faribault. The location of the former ‘Tree Frog Festival.”

Friday night will feature the Car Roll-in and live music, along with the return of the Blue Collar Market place and food vendors.

Saturday will be 12 hours of live music, food vendors, Blue Collar Market, a Bags Tournament, R/C Demolition Derby and the FHS Class of ’82 reunion.

Grab your lawn chair, friends and come down to the park. We ask that no outside food or beverage be brought into the park.

“The food lineup is almost as exciting as the music. Looking forward to the park and my chair for the afternoon”

– Cheryl, a real event goer.
