Ethnic Fest Returns To Walker For Another Fun Year
For roughly 30 years, on the second weekend of September, The City of Walker hosts a one-day event called Ethnic Fest. The festival kicks off with a parade in the morning and begins with its festivities in the afternoon. The event consisted of roughly 10 different food vendors, 20 crafters, and three different stages of live music.
The Anishinaabe artists were honored to share many different goods from blacksmith items, paintings, natural herb medicines, authentic beaded jewelry, and star quilts.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions last year, Ethnic Fest was unable to take place, but it sounds like this year’s event was a success.
The Leech Lake Area Chamber of Commerce is already making plans for next year’s event. you can find out more details on their website.
