More about the event:

A regional festival celebrating Art, Community, & the Art of Community in the Minnesota River Valley. Find out more on the Squidfest/RIBfest website.

Set in the charming riverfront downtown of local art hotspot Granite Falls, SquidFest showcases the wild wealth of art, music, food, culture, care, and crafts of this historied area.

SquidFest shares the day with the local American Legion #69’s RibFest, the Steve Virnig Memorial Disc Golf Tournament, and Welcome Days, because more food, friends, and music is always better – and RibFest will continue into the night.
