About our History

Father Hennepin Days, after fifty years, came to life again. The year of 1929 was the only celebration until 1976. The Bicentennial Committee decided it should be renewed to celebrate our heritage.
 
Each year on the second weekend in June, Champlin is home to the Father Hennepin Festival.  Celebrating the history behind Champlin, the festival is a community celebration located at Mississippi Point Park along the Mississippi River.

Join us June 10 - 12, 2022!

We honor our first special events committee from 1976.
