Lucy Winton Bell Athletic Fields

Cost: $10 per car. Separate entrance fee for 5k “Run with the Bison” Fun Run.

This beloved annual event features the release of the 2023 Northstar Bison herd onto Belwin’s Bison Prairie. In addition to the release, visitors can also enjoy fun activities for all ages, such as eco-arts, food trucks, and music from Imniza Ska Dakota Drum Group, One Voice Mixed Chorus, and more! Prior to the release, we’ll also host a 5k “Run with the Bison” Fun Run so visitors can run through the Prairie before the festival begins.

The Fun Run will begin at 10 am and the bison herd will be released at noon! (Animals don’t always follow our schedule, so we give them some wiggle room!)
