The Interlaken Heritage Days committee is excited to be working on the 2021 Interlaken Heritage Days celebration scheduled for June 12th! This event is successful because of the generous contributions from our local businesses and organizations helping to build it up year after year. Interlaken Heritage Days is a registered 501(c)3 organization.

The attendees of the 2019 festival were able to enjoy different events like a free community meal, art projects, street dance and other live music, bouncy houses, face painting and of course the big IHD parade all thanks to the generosity of your donations. Planning an event for the community such as this takes numerous hours, and several months, to coordinate. Funding is one of the largest parts of that planning. We can only bring events to the celebration that we have the funding for. Below is an example of the cost for just some of the events we brought you in 2019, as well as other things needed to operate. This is just a small example!

  • Shriner’s Cars for parade–$550
  • St Peter High School Marching Band for parade–$1200
  • Fairmont Hight School Marching Band for parade–$298
  • Trimont Centennial Band for parade–$250
  • Face Painter for Saturday & Sunday–$778
  • Balloon Artist for Saturday & Sunday–$850

  • Community Meal Friday night–$795
  • All live music Friday, Saturday & Sunday–$6,000
  • Rental of Heritage Acres–$675
