Event Details

Wild Rice Festival

The Harriet Alexander Nature Center (HANC) is pleased to announce its 17th Annual Wild Rice Festival on Saturday, September 19, 2020, 10am-4pm. This family-friendly celebration of wild rice, the Minnesota harvest season, and Native American cultures is an all-day event presented with the assistance of event partners the Pow Wow Grounds Cafe and Gibbs Farm. The Festival is free of admission charge, thanks to generous sponsors. All aspects of the festival will take place on the grounds of the nature center at 2520 N. Dale Street, Roseville, Minnesota.

A major goal of the festival is to provide education to the Roseville area community about local Native American cultures and traditions. A new Native American dance group will perform while another new addition this year are demonstrations of the Native American game of lacrosse. Learn how wild rice is harvested and processed the traditional way, and check out the Gibbs Farm tipi. Seasonal harvest activities include honey extraction (buy a bottle of the honey at the HANC Store) and help press yourself a cup of apple cider. Food concessions include Native American offerings, including fry bread, by Pow Wow Grounds Café.

More information about the Wild Rice Festival, a Zero Waste event, can be found at or by calling the Harriet Alexander Nature Center at (651) 765-HANC (4262).
