A fun fall tradition in downtown Waconia
Nickle Dickle Day started as an end-of-the-summer closeout shopping day in 1961 and has become an annual fall tradition in Waconia. There’s something for everyone at this small town festival, which is held each year on the second Saturday after Labor Day. Mark your calendar and make your plans – it’s an event you won’t want to miss.
Dance the Night Away
The festivities kick off with the Nickle Dickle Eve Street Dance on Friday night. Located at Main Street & Vine, this outdoor event for adults 21+ features live music, a cash bar, and lots of fun.
A Day Filled with Fun
Events are scheduled all day on Saturday starting with the Nickle Dickle Day Run, with race options for all ages and abilities. There’s a car show, arts and crafts fair, live music in the park all day, duck races, pony rides, a basketball tournament and slam dunk contest, games prizes, and more.
Shop ‘Till You Drop
Shopping is still a big part of Nickle Dickle Day, with local shops offering great deals, a library sale, and booths for vendors of all types set up throughout downtown.
