Star of the North Games

Saturday, June 22

The Star of the North Games is Minnesota’s own Olympic-style multi-sport event. Each year, a different Minnesota community hosts the Games. In 2012, Rochester will host the Games for the ninth time. The number of sports varies from year to year, usually between 18-24. The number of athletes also varies from 4,000 to 6,000, usually due to the host location, sports offered and the number of courts and fields available. When coaches, referees, family members and spectators are included, the Star of the North Games will bring 8,000 to 12,000 people to Rochester over the two weekends of the Games. The emphasis is on friendly, participatory competition. While the Star of the North Games does draw some participation by elite athletes, the emphasis is on participation and sportsmanship. Most athletes like the Games because they say it’s “fun.” The 2013 Star of the North Summer Games will be held in Saint Paul over two weekends: June 21-23 and June 28-30.
