Straight River Days is an annual community celebration held in Medford, Minnesota in June. Straight River Days was first celebrated in 1971 and due to its abundant resource, it was almost called “Gravel Days”. The first Straight River Days event celebrated the opening of the new waste water treatment facility and included a parade, a carnival, canoe derby, street dance, and the Miss Medford Beauty Pageant.
We are thankful for our sponsors, volunteers and support from our local and surrounding communities who make it possible to carry on this annual tradition.
Mark your calendars – this is sure to be a fun and exciting weekend!
