After careful consideration, it is with a heavy heart that the Big Lake Spud Fest Board has decided to cancel Spud Fest 2020. This decision was made with the health and safety of our participants, vendors and sponsors in mind. We look forward to planning for the return of Big Lake Spud Fest on June 24-27, 2021.
Big Lake Spud Fest was created in 1972. Our founding fathers of the festival were looking for a means to provide funds for summer youth recreation programs and an event for Big Lake and surrounding areas that promoted a strong sense of community and sharing. Over the years, Big Lake Spud Fest has grown into more than just a simple summer event! We now sponsor and implement new events year-round, providing fun and safe activities for all who attend!
Charitable Gambling Division
The Charitable Gambling division was started in October, 2014, when Big Lake Spud Fest took over the legal gambling operations at Tootsies Lakeside Pub . Paper pull tabs and electronic tabs are offered daily! Meat raffles are held Wednesday & Friday evenings and also Sunday afternoons. Profits go back into the community to help fund local youth organizations.
Giving back is what we do... one pull tab at a time!
Support us by playing pull tabs & meat raffles at Tootsies!
