Are You Brave Enough to Take the Yeti Plunge?

Yeti Fest 2024

As winter’s grip begins to loosen, Warroad gears up for one last icy hurrah with the annual YetiFest, scheduled for Saturday, March 16, 2024.

Start the day off right with yoga and a pint at the Lake of the Woods Brewing Company.

For those craving some adrenaline-pumping action, YetiFest offers a thrilling lineup of activities. Grab a toboggan and race down the hill. Join the fun run around town, soaking in the scenic beauty of Warroad. Don’t forget to make time for street games like Jumbo Jenga, Connect Four, Axe Throwing, Boot Hockey, Corn Hole, Ladder Ball, and Human Candyland.

As you probably know, the pièce de résistance of YetiFest is undoubtedly the legendary Yeti Plunge. Brave souls of all ages gather to take the plunge into the icy waters, all in the name of charity. Whether clad in swimsuits, outrageous costumes, or everyday attire, participants leap into the frigid depths with gusto, cheered on by the spirited crowd on land. It’s a sight to behold and a day not to be missed.

YetiFest isn’t just about adrenaline-fueled thrills; it’s also a celebration of community spirit and generosity. With proceeds benefiting the Warroad Special Olympics, every plunge and every cheer contributes to a worthy cause, ensuring that the warmth of kindness resonates long after the winter chill fades away.

And as the day winds down, don’t miss the chance to shout “Bingo!” with the Warroad Area Women of Today, adding a dash of excitement to the festivities.

To take the plunge you will need to register and pay $25 or $35 for a family of 3. You are required to use a floatation device when you jump.

“All plungers need to attend a meeting on the docks at 2:45 p.m. prior to the Plunge start at 3:00 pm.”

Start Time: 2:45pm CDT
End Time: 4:30pm CDT
Price: $25.00
