The town of Emmetsburg was originally settled by immigrants during the Irish potato famine between 1845 and 1852. Due to the strong Irish heritage, the city hosts a 3-day Saint Patrick’s Day celebration each year on the weekend closest to the holiday.  Activities include the Miss Shamrock pageant, Little Irish dancers, appearance of area queens, politicians, and, to reign over all of the activities, a special guest from Ireland (typical a member of the Irish Parliament).

Emmetsburg also takes great pride in their academics and athletic teams; the town is home to Emmetsburg Community Schools, Emmetsburg Catholic School, and Iowa Lakes Community College. An unforgettable feature in this North Iowa community is Five Island Lake. The thousand-acre lake offers excellent summertime fishing, boating, swimming, water skiing, and wildlife viewing opportunities. Winter offers opportunities for snowmobiling, cross country skiing, ice fishing, hockey, and skating.

There will be plenty of camping for all registered riders in the designated campgrounds that is situated fairly close to the evening activities. These campsites will be listed in the future.
