Happy Days Festival
Happy Days is the City of Ramsey’s annual hometown festival. This popular event takes place in early September and is located within The COR (North of Highway 10 near the Ramsey Municipal Center). The Ramsey Happy Days Festival hosts a large array of family friendly activities and events during the day. When the sun goes down, live music and an impressive fireworks show takeover. Most events are free thanks to the contributions of our generous sponsors. View a video (MPG) from the 2017 event.

On Saturday, September 7, register for the annual 5K and Youth Fun Run, Bike Tour, Expo, Parade, Dog Show and more! A concert and fireworks show conclude the evening.
