It’s spring! Which means summer is right around the corner. School will be out, all of the snow will be melted, and we will see green grass again. But how do you make the most of your summer in Minot?

Souris Valley Sabre Dogs

The Sabre Dogs are a collegiate summer baseball team. 2018 was their first year in Minot and made it to the playoffs! Also, Corbett Field (where the Sabre Dogs play) won the Best Ballpark of 2018. Be sure to catch a game in 2019. Check out their website to get tickets!

Farmers Market

The Minot Farmers Market is great way to support local growers, bakers, and makers. The market is open twice a week from end of June through October. There’s not a better place to find your produce!

Minot has hosted Ribfest for the past few years. If you’re from the south you will really appreciate this weekend event. The 2019 Ribfest will not only have ribs, but live music, and Monster Truck Thunder! Check out their page for more information.

Midsummer Night Festival

The Midsummer Night Festival is hosted by the Scandinavian Heritage Association. Midsummer is celebrated largely in Sweden. Legend has it that the night before Midsummer’s Day is a magical time for love. The festival will be on June 19th this year in the Scandinavian Heritage Park.

Roosevelt Pool

The Roosevelt Pool is Minot’s only outdoor public pool and has a slide over 1,000 feet long. The pool is a great way to get outside, get a tan, and burn off some energy. Also, at the end of every summer season, the pool hosts a doggy pool party.

Located behind the Minot State University Dome, MSU Summer Theatre performs multiple plays and musicals each June and July and has since 1965. This year’s lineup includes; Mamma Mia, June 12-17, Cash on Delivery, June 27-July 1, Big Fish, July 10-16, and Beauty and the Beast, July 24-28 and July 30-August 3.
