International Eelpout Festival

  • Share:
Name: International Eelpout Festival
Date: February 23, 2017 - February 26, 2017
Event Description:
For the past 37 years, and for three days every February, crowds that are more than 10 times the population of tiny Walker, MN (pop. 1,069) gather on Minnesota’s third largest lake (112,000-acres), Leech Lake, for a festival named for one of the ugliest bottom-dwelling fish, the eel pout.
In a state where it is common to embrace the quirky and find great fun in the most unlikely circumstances and weather conditions, this festival is pure Minnesota fun.
Leech Lake, Walker MN
