On September 6, 1962 a 20 lbs. piece of Russian Sputnik IV landed in the middle of the street on the corner of N. 8th and Park. Sputnikfest is our way of bringing the community together to celebrate this momentous event.
Named one of the Top Five Funkiest Festivals in the country by Readers Digest, this wacky tacky festival has become a community and regional favorite, with fun for the entire family.
There’s food, music, raffles and contests for every age group and life form. Purchase a Sputnikfest t-shirt or poster at the merchandise tent, have your picture taken with a member of the 501st Legion (Star Wars characters), dress up in a spacey alien costume, or just join in the fun! You won’t want to miss this.
“Sputnik landed here…Why don’t you?”
