Special invitation to be Part of Maple Grove Days

Maple Grove Community Organization (MGCO) is a non-profit organization; that provides the community of Maple Grove with family oriented events like the upcoming community festival Maple Grove Days.

This year’s Maple Grove Days runs Wednesday through Sunday, July 10 to 14. The annual festival draws an estimated 30,000 people to enjoy such activities as the Pierre Bottineau Parade, business expo, art fair, children’s activities, Rice Lake Classic Run, tennis and golf tournaments, Maple Grove Ambassador Coronation and so much more.

MGCO would like to promote the community by adding the participation of local businesses to the festival with a Citywide Maple Grove Days Sidewalk Sales. There is no fee or registration form to participate in the Maple Grove Days Sidewalk Sales. All a business needs to do is plan its own special Maple Grove Days promotion and sale.

However, if participating, a business selects to do a sidewalk sale they would need to abide by all guidelines established by any individual management companies; state and local health permits, Maple Grove City Code (Sec. 36-482 1C, available click on community profile) and the American Disability Act (Chapter 1341.Minnesota Accessibility Code; 1341.0422, Subpart 3, Item B.) a minimum clear width for an exterior accessible route shall be 48 inches (four feet) walk way access on any public walkway.

MGCO will promote Maple Grove Days Sidewalk Sales & Festival Specials on the Maple Grove Days web site and in the Maple Grove Days Guide (25,000 copies distributed) with the following information: Maple Grove Days Sidewalk Sales & Festival Specials happening July 10 to 14 throughout the city

Another great Maple Grove Days happening is the new “Button of Savings.” Maple Grove Days buttons are available for $3 at the Maple Grove Community Center and also sold by the Maple Grove Ambassador candidates. The button is needed to play and win the eighth annual Maple Grove Days Medallion Hunt, and includes money saving offers. Wear a Maple Grove Days button to receive special offers from participating local businesses. The roster of participating businesses is attached to every button and will also be available on the website.

MGCO hopes that many Maple Grove businesses will choose to join Maple Grove Days. For more information on other events visit the website at or call 763-494-5985.
