Tater Daze Festival
History of the Tater Daze 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; this area then went on to become one of the nation's top potato producers. Despite 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 Tater Daze festival in 1964 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.
A gift shop that lets children experience the thrill of buying gifts "secretly" for family and friends.
All gifts are child priced for everyone can participate.
