Every year, on the first weekend following Labor Day, the town of Jordan Minnesota celebrates it's German heritage with Heimatfest. What started out as “Hub Valley Days” was replaced with Heimatfest in 1985 and became a larger, community focused celebration. The name “Heimatfest”, which means homeland festival, was chosen as a result of a contest held in the community.
Local organizations and volunteers are the heart of the festival. They help host events such as the car cruise, parade, and the Run of the Mill 5K. In addition, these organizations and local businesses provide food and beverage offerings during the festival. Heimatfest relies on the support of the local community for it's success.
Heimatfest welcomes residents, family, friends and anyone who wishes to enjoy the town of Jordan and it's hospitality. Entrance to the festival is free. The car cruise and parade are held in historic downtown Jordan. The remainder of the festivities are held in Lagoon Park, which features a waterfall, the Mill Pond, and shaded park grounds.
The Heimatfest Committee is always striving to improve the event. If you wish to help out in any way, please free to reach out and contact us.
We hope to see you in September — Come Home to Celebrate!
