The tradition continues!
After 40 years of hosting New Brighton Stockyard Days, the Board of Directors of Stockyard Days, Inc., decided that their run of planning and managing a community event as large as Stockyard Days had to come to a close. The community owes past organizing management, members and volunteers a great deal of gratitude for the 40 years of fun and celebration of our great New Brighton heritage and community.
Good News! The tradition continues!
The New Brighton Lions Club stepped forward and with their belief that New Brighton residents deserves a dynamic, fun and community building event, they have accepted the opportunity to plan the event going forward.
It won't happen without help from volunteers in the community and a commitment to understand that there may be a few hic-cups in this first transitional year. Look for opportunities to help or even join the Lions Club. The Lions have a strong membership committed to doing the best for our community.
Our web site is under construction and in the coming weeks you will see the the site and the festival come together with lots of the same traditions and new and exciting changes!
Save the dates! August 12, 13, 14th, 2022!

Stockyard Days is an annual multi-day festival celebrating the spirited history of New Brighton, Minnesota, with a parade, live music, games, prizes, food, local business and artisan booths, the Antique Car Run, and more.
The City of New Brighton is over a century old, but incredibly young at heart. Stockyard Days began in 1981 as a way to recall the early days of the city as a center for the cattle industry including the stockyards, railroads, fashionable hotels and meatpacking plants.
As Stockyard Days celebrates 41 years in 2022, the community continues to remain lively and involved in its festivities. Local merchants, businesses, artists, and hundreds of volunteers participate in concerts, tournaments, a parade, games, live entertainment, food sampling, fireworks, the finish line of the Antique Car Run, and the New Brighton Ambassador coronation. New ideas for activities and entertainment are welcomed each year.
Enjoy the fun, and make exciting memories that you can build on every year. Get roped into Stockyard Days!
