Crookston is the regional hub within the Red River Valley, home of the best agricultural land in the world. The farmers of this land feed the world and also feed a thriving local community. Through our town winds the meandering Red Lake River. The beauty and opportunities are endless on the water from some of the best catfishing in the region to canoeing and kayaking each turn. Our very own outfitters provides rentals and drop-off and pick-up for ease. Our beautiful Historic downtown features turn-of-the-century architecture and specialty shopping, unique stores, stories and experiences. The Grand Theatre, where Vaudeville once reigned in its beautiful 1910 architecture, is one of the oldest continually operating movie theatres in the country. Widman’s Candy Shop, established in 1911 and voted #1 Candy Store in Minnesota in 2015, still offers old-fashioned soda fountain treats and their famous “Chippers”, chocolate-covered potato chips and other hand-dipped candies. Many other unique restaurant options from home-cooked meals to authentic Mexican make Crookston a great place to grab a bite and our Farmer’s Market meets every Thursday at the Downtown Square.
