The 61st Annual Waterama is July 26-31, 2016

Plans for a fun and successful 61st Waterama celebration are in full swing. 

Each year we do our best to improve upon what is already known as one of

the best celebrations in the State of Minnesota – Waterama!

Our multiple day festival is located on the shores of beautiful Lake Minnewaska in Glenwood, Minnesota.  Waterama offers something for everyone with a 100-unit Parade, Kiddie Parade, Water Shows, Pageants, Dances, Sporting Events, Races, Contests, and a Medallion Hunt. 

We offer Minnesota’s only Lighted Pontoon Parade followed by State of the Art Fireworks. 

Other activities include Crazy Days Sales, Art and Craft Shows, Car Show, Community Worship Service in City Park and Kids Tractor Pull. These activities and more, along with

times and dates, are listed on the Events Page. With all these happenings, you’re sure to work up an appetite. Don’t miss Waterama’s food vendors!  They offer hot eats and cool treats galore on the corner of South Lakeshore Drive and 2nd Street SW by City Park.


Waterama is always held the last full weekend in July. 

We invite you to come and enjoy everything Waterama has to offer.  You’ll see why we’re the largest community celebration of its kind in West Central Minnesota!
