Things to do...

Be part of Village life

Founded in the 1850s by Swedish brothers Erik and Jacob Petterson, Stockholm was a site where frontier lumber and settler's wheat were loaded on steamboats for the journey down river. Later years brought the railroad to the banks of the river, and the tracks are still in use, moving goods up and down the Mississippi.

Today, majestic river barges share scenic Lake Pepin with pleasure craft of all types and descriptions. The little villages of Stockholm, Pepin, and Maiden Rock snuggle against the towering river bluffs, offering a relaxed pace of life. The geographically unique area is rich with year-round natural beauty.

For more than 30 years the Village has hosted the Stockholm Art Fair on the third Saturday in July. The fair connects more than 100 regional and national artists and craftspeople with art-loving visitors. On the first weekend in December the Christmas Holiday is celebrated with special festivities. Special events take place in the neighboring towns and villages throughout the season.
