The Tradition Continues!
Welcome to New Brighton Stockyard Days Presented by the New Brighton Lions.

Stockyard Days is an annual multi-day festival celebrating the spirited history of New Brighton, Minnesota. Enjoy our parade, fireworks, Antique Car Run, New Brighton Idol, Local Craft Booths, Food Trucks, Family Fun Zone and live music, beer, soda, sweet corn, bags tournament, fun, fun and more fun.

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 the start of a growing and dynamic city. Today we celebrate our vibrant and diverse community of award winning schools, industry, parks and many neighborhoods. 

Stockyard Days celebrates 42 years in 2023!


New to the festival is an All-Class Reunion celebrating Irondale and Mounds View High Schools. We invite all graduates to come up to the park on Friday, August 11th. GB Leighton, a local band with national recognition will be on our main stage entertaining from 7-10:30.


Join us for the entire weekend!
