2021 PARADE Information


January 2021

Dear Friends of Stiftungsfest,

How fast five years have gone by…and 2021 is a parade year!! The Stiftungsfest Committee and 2021 Parade Committee invites you to participate with the 159th Stiftungsfest celebration on August 27, 28& 29, 2021, with the Stiftungsfest Parade on Sunday, August 29th starting at 12:30pm.

Stiftungsfest parades are very unique! Not only are the parades held every five years, but all units must be of entertainment value. We do not allow any units in for the sole purpose of advertising. We pride ourselves in looking for marching bands, musical floats, horse drawn units, antique vehicles, and anything else that may be unique and entertaining. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to promote your business, while showing community spirit, and ultimately support the NYA Fire Department.

What makes a small town celebration such a success is the generosity of its community members and businesses such as yours. We invite you to participate in the parade at Stiftungsfest - Minnesota’s Oldest Consecutive Celebration! We hope to hear from you in the very near future!

Should you have any questions, please email parade@stiftungsfest.org or call 952-200-8431.

Kind Regards,

Karen Hallquist, Parade Coordinator
Stiftungsfest Committee and the
2021 Stiftungsfest Parade Committee
