AROUND THE GROUNDS
The Narren of New Ulm is an entire village of elaborately masked characters – funny, quirky and just a bit scary – each with their own personality and story. An old German festival tradition (“narren” means fool), think of them as the relatives everyone has but no one wants to own.
Scottish bagpipes and drums at their finest:
1:37 p.m. leading the Peculiar Pragmatic Promenade
5:00 p.m. “Piping in the Pig” for the PIG ROAST
6:00 p.m. Closing Pipes
THE PECULIAR PRAGMATIC PROMENADE
At Precisely 1:37 P.M. YOU can be a part of the parade! Bring your costume, your act – can you juggle? Hula Hoop? Dance? Unicycle? – or just your peppy promenading self and join in! Meet at the twin silos at 1:20 p.m.
And you can win fabulous prizes in these categories:
The Promenade proceeds at precisely 1:37 p.m. to perambulate the public party already in progress at the Festival. Who will be promenading, besides YOU? The Brass Messengers, Minneapolis Police Pipe Band, The Narren, and many more!

“It was so nice to have things for the kids to do…we never heard “When can we go home?” once while we were at the festival. We are looking forward to next year!”
