Red Rooster Days

Following much discussion and deliberation, the Red Rooster Committee and its Ambassador Committee, along with the City of Dassel, have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Red Rooster Days celebration, which was scheduled for Labor Day weekend.

The event annually features a chicken BBQ, Dassel Farmers Market, music, bike rides and runs, an art show, parade, coronation of ambassdors, classic car show, kiddie tractor pull, concessions, vendors, and fireworks.

After considering the uncertainty of how to safely control social gatherings during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, health and safety of volunteers, and economic uncertainty, this could be a very difficult and challenging effort.

The Ambassador Committee, however, after meeting with the candidates and their parents, is making plans to host a variety of summer activities, and a change to the program and coronation. They will be following the reccomended guidelines of the state of Minnesota at all times. Details will be announced later.

For more information about these activities, contact Red Rooster Committee members:

• Maegan Huikko at

• Angela Schrupp at, or 320-310-2828.

The City of Dassel, the Red Rooster Committee, the Dassel Ambassador Organization, and the community greatly appreciate everyone’s understanding and support, and look forward to another fabulous Red Rooster Days celebration in 2021.
