It's official. The second annual, Leech Lake Frostfest, is happening. Join us Saturday, February 9th, 2019 from 11AM to 4PM, on the frozen waters of Minnesota's 3rd largest lake for an afternoon party.
Enjoy a full day of snow golf, live music, craft beer, a homebrew competition, local foods, and tons of activities and games for the kiddos. All ages are welcome.
We’re pleased to announce our partnership with Deep Portage Learning Center. As our beneficiary, this non-profit which specializes in outdoor education will receive 10% of the event’s proceeds.
THIS IS A NO TRACE EVENT. Every structure and piece of trash will be removed from City Park.
In partnership with Upstream Homebrewers Club and Portage Brewing Company, enjoy a free homebrew sampling at each hole's warming tent, out on the golf course. At the end of your round, vote for your favorite beer where the winner will be invited back to brew at the brewery.
LOCAL CRAFT BEER
Back again this year, is Portage Brewing Company, offering up an experimental mix of small batch beers, here in Walker. Portage will have at least four tap beers available for purchase at the event. Be sure to keep an eye on social media for a special menu for this year’s event.
WHERE TO STAY
Be sure to come North for the entire weekend, and stay at the wonderfully cozy Trappers Landing Lodge. Offering an array of winter activities, including: ice fishing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, campfires & s’mores.
Returning this year for another round, is Corey Medina & Brothers. Corey and his crew reside from the area, support tons of local projects, and play some fantastic, raw, soulful, intimate blues. Check out a live sample of their music, here. An opening act is scheduled, but not yet confirmed. Stay tuned.

Hosting again this year is Tianna Country Club and Reeds Sporting Goods which will be constructing a 9-hole snow golf course designed and constructed on Leech Lake for play. Your ticket into the event will gain you access to play a round, and borrow clubs and a ball. Each hole has its unique distance and hazardous challenge. Take your time to finish the round and cozy up in our warming houses with some homebrew samples.
DO SOME GOOD
We’re pleased to announce a partnership with Deep Portage Learning Center, in Hackensack, Minnesota. Focused on outdoor youth education, their values and vision for outdoor advocacy align perfectly with our team and event. 10% of all proceeds will be donated directly to their efforts.
