Alexandria, Minnesota Community Guide
Not a day goes by where you can't find something fun to do in the Alexandria area. When you’re not spending time out on Lake Geneva, why not take in a bit of the local color and enjoy many of the festivals and local sights that make Alexandria a unique place to visit.
Warm weather festivals each year include Awake the Lakes during Memorial Day Weekend, Douglas County Fair in the summer and Grape Stomp Festival in the fall and an Ice Fishing challenge in the brisk winter time. In between are several well-established celebrations including golf tournaments, theater presentations including a telethon fund raiser called Jingle Bells, and the premier band festival in all of Minnesota, the Vikingland Band Festival and Parade in June.
