A look at the event schedule for Ox Cart Days 2022 – Crookston Times

Jess Bengtson editor-in-chief

Crookston’s premier summer festival, Ox Cart Days, returns from 15th-21st August 2022 and the schedule of events is set, plus there will be a surprise festival button-release party on 24th June at the Crookston Eagles Club from 8pm with a performance by Nashville up-and-comer Dariann Leigh. Additionally, the festival’s summer cookouts return on the third Tuesday – June 21, July 19 and August 16 – at Hugo’s Family Marketplace in Crookston.

Festival buttons are again an affordable $5, with admission to many events included for the low price. Buttons are available through members of the Ox Cart Days committee and at several locations such as Hugo’s in Crookston.
