Quartzsiter Days is the annual weekend celebration of the town and history of Jasper, in the Southwestern corner of Minnesota. The region is known for its Sioux Quartzite and Pipestone quarries and Richardson Romanesque quartzite architecture, as well as plains, rivers, farms, and bluffs. Jasper has one of the last remaining Sioux Quartzite quarries that is still producing stone, including large dimensional stone for buildings and monuments. The Jasper Stone Company is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as a number of the homes and businesses in the small village.
Many activities are planned including a Classic Car Cruise-In and BBQ, a street dance in the historic downtown, tours of the Jasper Historical Society and the Jasper Stone Company, tours of the Windmill Man’s display of antique and rare windmills, a free community meal, a parade, games and inflatables for kids, a vendor fair and farmer’s market, and much more!
