Hello friends of the Defeat of Jesse James celebration,

2021 Defeat of Jesse James Days Celebration Update! In light of the recent announcement made by Minnesota Governor, Tim Walz, about the removal of capacity limits and additional COVID-19 restrictions, the DJJD committee along with city staff and local health officials, are hopeful that the 2021 Defeat of Jesse James Days celebration will take place in as close to full capacity as possible. The DJJD committee remains committed to hosting a safe celebration for all and will continue ahead with plans for the 2021 celebration while making certain accommodations to increase sanitation measures through celebration events when/where possible.

Please note, we continue to seek out businesses in and around the Northfield community and beyond who wish to financially support our celebration as a sponsor and in return will receive a variety of advertising opportunities leading up to and throughout our celebration which annually attracts crowds of more than 150,000. If your business is interested in learning more about sponsorship opportunities, please send us a message to connect. We look forward to celebrating with you all once again in Northfield for the Defeat of Jesse James Days celebration, the weekend after labor day.

Let the countdown begin!
