Nisswa ushers in fall with the 48th annual Nisswa Fall Festival on Saturday, September 18th. The 16th annual Smokin' Hot BBQ Challenge is also part of this annual fall tradition. Start your day with a pancake breakfast presented by the Nisswa Fire Department. You can participate in the medallion hunt and compete in the bean bag tournament. Kids congregate at KIDZONE at Pioneer Village and in the gazebo for activities and memory making.
The tantalizing smell of barbecued ribs wafts through town as teams compete in the Smokin' Hot BBQ Challenge. After ribs are judged, the public gets its change to taste the creations. Live music throughout the day continues into the night with a live outdoor concert.
