Happy Days 2021

Dog Show, Expo, Parade and Food Vendor applications launch April 15!

We know what you're thinking - is there going to be a festival this year? The answer? You bet! We are approaching the planning process this year with cautious optimism. We are closely monitoring recommendations from the CDC and the Minnesota Department of Health and are hopeful that, by the fall, the majority of the population will be vaccinated and we are able to once again host our Happy Days Festival. Mark your calendars, folks! This year, the festival will be Saturday, September 11. Let's celebrate and put 2020 (and the coronavirus) behind us! This page will be updated as more information becomes available._DMS0632 copy

About the Festival

Happy Days is the City of Ramsey’s annual hometown festival. This popular event takes place in early September and is located within The COR (North of Highway 10 near the Ramsey Municipal Center). The Ramsey Happy Days Festival hosts a large array of family-friendly activities and events during the day. When the sun goes down, live music and an impressive fireworks show takeover. Most events are free thanks to the contributions of our generous sponsors. View a video (MPG) from the 2017 event.
