It is with deep regret that we announce the cancellation of this year’s Otsego Prairie Festival and Car Show scheduled for Saturday, September 19 at Prairie Park.
We know this will be a major disappointment to our Otsego neighbors, as well as the car collectors, exhibitors, businesses and vendors from across Minnesota that participate in our event each year.
This decision has not been made lightly but is necessary based on current guidelines from the Minnesota Department of Health regarding social distancing and limits on crowd sizes. Uncertainty about how the guidelines may change as the festival got closer made it essentially impossible to plan for this year’s event. However, it’s as important as ever during these challenging times that we be resilient and united.
In that spirit, Otsego will still come together and look to the sky as one community on Saturday, September 12 at 9:00 p.m. for our most thrilling Otsego Prairie Festival fireworks display yet. This year, the fireworks will be launched higher than usual so more people can view them with family and friends in limited gatherings at home or by socially distancing at Prairie Park.
All are encouraged to share their photos of the fireworks on the Otsego Prairie Festival’s Facebook page.
Otsego will come together on Saturday, September 19, 2020 at Prairie Park to celebrate our community.
Each year the Otsego Prairie Festival has grown, building on the success of the prior events and planning has already started for this year’s festival.
There will be exhibitors, activities and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy throughout the day including many new attractions and food vendors together with familiar favorites from previous years. The Otsego Prairie Festival starts at 10:00 a.m. and continues throughout the day culminating with a fireworks display at dusk.
Last year’s Otsego Prairie Festival was an overwhelming success in terms of an increased number of attractions and vendors that in turn promoted large numbers of people to attend. We hope you and your family enjoyed the Prairie Festival and wish to extend our thanks again to the sponsors and vendors for their support of the Otsego community and the Otsego Prairie Festival.
