Grumpy Old Men Festival in Wabasha

Disclosure Affiliate

The 26th Annual Grumpy Old Men Festival starts Friday (February 22nd). I think most all of us Minnesotans are fans of the movie Grumpy Old Men. You just have to love a movie that is set in Minnesota AND did filming here! The city of Wabasha proudly declares itself “Home of Grumpy Old Men” and that gives us all a reason to celebrate at the silver anniversary of the Grumpy Old Men Festival¬† there!


The two day festival in Wabasha kicks off with a showing of the movie; Grumpy Old Men at the local library.  The fun continues after the movie and then all day Saturday. Events include:

  • Music
  • 10th Annual Grumpy Plunge
  • Spaghetti Feed
  • Vintage Wool & Hand Knit Trunk Show
  • Ice Fishing Contest
  • Bingo
  • Minnow Races
  • Plus more
