Join us on Saturday, September 16, 2023 for the Marine Fall Festival, celebrating the beauty of autumn and handcrafted art in the St. Croix Valley.

Hosted by Marine Mills Folk School, the Marine Fall Festival will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to drop in and enjoy a variety of activities at the free community festival located on the grounds of Marine Mills Folk School.

Festival activities include an Artists’ Marketplace with more than 55 high-end artisans; crafting demonstrations by skilled weavers, woodcarvers and others; children’s activities; live bluegrass music and dancing; food; a raffle; sheep dog-herding demonstrations; and more.

A complete schedule of events will be published soon! Read all about how the community is taking center stage at the Marine Fall Festival here.
