Discover the fun in swift county
Swift County contains so many opportunities to make memories and enjoy yourself!
The Swift County Fair
The Swift County Fair is held at the fairgrounds in Appleton every year near the middle of August. There is something for everyone at the fair. There are 4-H shows and displays, a delightful midway, a bingo tent, a exotic petting zoo, and tons of friendly people, of course! It's a time to relax, enjoy the events, dance, sing along to great music, learn, and meet new friends.
Town and Country Days in Kerkhoven is festive and fun for adults, children, and families. There is food, a kiddie train, a parade, a classic car show, a firefighter water fight, a street dance, and even a dunk tank. With so much to do, Town and Country Days should not be missed.
A wonderful way to discover the beauty of Swift County is at the Swift Falls County Park. It has a beautiful stream and dam that make the park lush and green. The park is great for camping, for having a picnic or an event, and even fishing!
The Swift Falls County Park is located along the Glacial Ridge Trail, a scenic byway that winds along lakes left behind by the huge glaciers that scraped across what is now Swift County, and so much more of Minnesota.
even more Parks!
If you're looking for a day in the park, but also want to stay in town, the Ambush Park in Benson, or Riverside Park in Appleton are both wonderful. Ambush Park has picnic shelters, a playground, and even free Mini-golf. Plus, it's not far from Benson's swimming pool! Riverside Park in Appleton is also beautiful. It is situated on the Pomme de Terre River, and has a playground, restrooms, a picnic shelter, and access to lovely walking and biking trails.
