Phelps Mill Festival is returning to Otter Tail County on July 10 and 11. Artist applications are being accepted until April 15.
The festival encourages high-quality artists and crafters to apply for this great event that draws up to 20,000 people each year, according to an Otter Tail County news release. All artists are hand-picked to ensure quality and originality. Artists can download the application on the festival website.
There are activities for the whole family, including a spot at the main stage for entertainment as well as kids’ activities all day, both days.
Phelps Mill Festival has several food vendors: pancakes, brats, pork chops, baked potatoes, burgers, popcorn, pulled pork, ice cream sundaes and root beer floats, just to name a few. The food is made by local non-profits, as the release stated.
The festival was canceled in 2020. As a new event, the festival will feature area craft beer and wine artists for a tasting event on Saturday, July 10 from 2-6 p.m.
This activity is funded in part by a grant from the Lake Region Arts Council through a Minnesota State Legislative appropriation.
