Lake City, MN: Water Ski Days

This event is held each year during the last full weekend in June. Water Ski Days celebrates the invention of water skiing in Lake City, and its inventor, Ralph Samuelson.

This city-wide event has something for everyone! A carnival, complete with rides and games, an arts and crafts fair with 100+ vendors, a grand parade, classic car show, food trucks, huge concerts, and of course, water ski show teams!

In 2022 we celebrate the 50th year of the festival and 100 years as “The Birthplace of Water Skiing” with 4 days of fun, featuring Water Ski 100 programming presented by Hearth and Home Technologies. You’ll want to mark your calendars early and start planning today!

Water Ski Days is a Lake City Chamber of Commerce event.
