Wahkon Days 2021 & Beyond

“Cities have no statutory authority to hold fundraisers. We recommend that the City establish a relationship with a local non-profit organization to handle the activities of Wahkon Days. The proceeds from the event can be donated to the City once the event is complete.”
Due to the above “significant deficiency” noted in Wahkon’s 2019 audit, Council made the difficult, but necessary, decision that the City can no longer be in charge of this wonderful community event. The City began organizing Wahkon Days in 2010 after the Wahkon Civic Assoc. dissolved, in order to continue the long-held tradition. The City conducted ten very successful events thanks to dedicated volunteers!
The band Jonah and the Whales were booked for 2020, but due to COVID-19 it was cancelled. They allowed our retainer to be carried over to Saturday August 21, 2021. The City has extensive notes and financial reports for each year’s events which would be shared gratefully to the new organization.
If someone knows of a non-profit organization willing and able to do Wahkon Days, please contact Karrie @ #320.495.3441. It is Council’s desire that this small-town event can continue into the future!
