Moose Lake is known as the Agate Capital of the World and is home to the world's largest agate on record weighing in at 108 pounds. This is kept on display at the First National Bank of Moose Lake. Every year we host the 'Agate Days' celebration which includes the "Agate Stampede".
Two dump trucks empty loads of rock mixed with agates and hundreds of
dollars in quarters down Elm Avenue. Thousands of people line up along
the two block street and wait for the cannon to boom signaling the start
of the stampede.
Our largest celebrations include the Old Fashioned 4th of July
in the city park including fireworks at dusk,
Agate Days and Art in the Park. These events draw many, many visitors
to the area, especially for the Agate Stampede which is always held at
2:00 p.m. on the Saturday of Agate Days.
Moose Lake and the surrounding area has miles and miles of trails for biking, walking, rollerblading, snowmobiling, four-wheeling and many more outdoor activities.
