Turtle Fest has been a fun, family-friendly tradition in Perham for the past 28 years, encouraging residents and visitors alike to get out of their shells – and come out and play.


This year’s Turtle Fest will feature many of the same favorites that families have come to look forward to year after year, including, of course, the turtle races, but also games for kids, a grand parade, street fair, Perham Express train rides, sports tournaments, food and craft vendors, and more.
