Tater Daze Festival

Festival dates

June 16 to 18, 2016

Enjoy some highlights from the 2015 festival. #WeAreBrooklynPark

History of the festival

Brooklyn Park Tater Daze is a unique festival where residents pay homage to the humble potato. Early settlers discovered that potatoes flourished in the flat, sandy soil of the area. Through the Great Depression, drought and urbanization, Brooklyn Park has shown its strength as a community willing to work together and make our city a welcoming place for everyone.

The first festival saw a variety of exciting events, including a queen pageant, Tater Mash Dance, kite flying, a parade, games, a farmer's market, rides and a pancake breakfast. The prizes given away that weekend included gasoline, free groceries, cash and 420-pound bags of potatoes donated by local growers.

The Brooklyn Park Jaycees, the Brooklyn Park Community Organization and Come Home to the Park have all sponsored the event in the past. Tater Daze is now sponsored by the City of Brooklyn Park.
