"Festival of Lakes"

Now in its 30th year, Fete des Lacs (or the “Festival of Lakes”) is a week-long community festival in Centerville, MN. This event honors our history and takes advantage of the beautiful parks, lakes, and trails that surround us.


Stay tuned to this website for event updates or follow us on Facebook!

It takes a village to pull off a great festival! We couldn’t do it without amazing volunteers. If you’re interested in volunteering for this year’s festival, please fill out this form. Keep in mind that not all events need volunteers, but if you specify days you are available, our planning committee can get in touch about volunteer opportunities.

Please fill out our Volunteer Form here.
