Welcome to Wabasha, a historic river town for ALL SEASONS. Wabasha is also the home of "Grumpy Old Men" movies and the future home of The National Eagle Center. Hopefully, most people visiting Wabasha realize we are proud of our role in the movies, and that we have all the "old grouches" locked up. So in fact, Wabasha is friendly and has quite a reputation for its hospitality and its eagle watching. Wabasha has one of the largest winter concentrations of bald eagles in the lower 48 States.
Wabasha, an historic river town of 2400 people, will provide a friendly haven for your vacation during all seasons. We're a truly Mid-American town that can turn back the clock to the days when the "liven' was easy."
Established in the 1830's, Wabasha lays claim to being Minnesota's oldest community and is listed on the National Historic Register. Visitors are pleased to find three area museums and often some of their own heritage.
Visitors find many festivals here with flea markets, an 100 mile garage sale (May), county fair (July), Riverboat Days (July), arts and crafts fair, Sept Oberfest (mid September - end of October), a Grumpy Old Men Festival each February with an ice fishing contest and a"Grumpy Plunge" into the Mississippi River, as well as year round eagle watching.
