Thank you for your interest in the 46th Annual Grand Old Day 2019!

Each year Grand Old Day draws 200,000+ people from the greater Twin Cities area. For 46 years the first Sunday in June has been known as the kick-off to summer! The festival is held along the 22 blocks of Grand Avenue, Saint Paul’s premier shopping, dining, entertainment district. We start the morning off with a parade down the avenue and meander through-out the day with delicious food, our Grand Old Day Market, live bands, a family fun district and so much more! Celebrate the start of summer with one of the Midwest’s largest one-day festivals!
