Heritage Village

August 5 - August 11, 2024

Step back in time and experience rural life as it was more than a century ago at Dakota City Heritage Village.

During the fair, Dakota City comes to life with costumed interpreters and activities of 100 years ago. Open to the public at no additional charge, Dakota City is a 1900 era rural village of twenty-two buildings, including a blacksmith shop, newspaper office, schoolhouse and millinery shop, representing the business and social center of a rural community.
You may also enjoy threshing demonstrations, bucket brigade demonstrations, or roving musicians through the village. Visit the Ahlberg Heritage Center to see our new museum exhibits and agricultural displays. Fun for all ages can be had at Dakota City Heritage Village. Come and see!
  • Stop for an ice cream cone or 1919 Root Beer in the Drugstore
