James J. Hill Days | Wayzata
September 8 @ 5:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Since 1975 the weekend following Labor Day in Wayzata has been dedicated to honoring James J. Hill, Minnesota historic figure and once owner of the Great Northern Railroad Company. Hill, builder of the present train depot in 1906, contributed significantly to transform Wayzata into the beautiful tourist location and friendly community we know today. James J. Hill Days is Lake Minnetonka’s favorite community tradition, as highlighted by the “Best Of” Lake Minnetonka award. For the last 49 years this annual festival has brought the community together to celebrate Wayzata, while enjoying food, fun & family festivities!
