Discover the Music, Mullets, and Mass a Myriad of Freebies This Weekend!

It's one of the most successful expos in all of Southeast Minnesota, showcasing more than 100 businesses and organizations offering information, entertainment, games, and free stuff. Lots and lots of free stuff.

This was one of the first events my family and I attended when we moved to SE Minnesota, and we have made it a point to return every year since. It's seriously impressive to see that many people and organizations come together in one place.

Celebrating the iconic hairstyle, the Dodge County Expo is hosting its inaugural Mullet Contest. Whether business in the front and party in the back is your life motto or you just love a good throwback, everyone is invited to showcase their splendid mullets in all their glory (wigs are welcome, too!). This will, no doubt, provide some fantastic photo opportunities.

The mullet contest is open to all ages and judging will begin at 1:15 pm inside the Expo on March 23, 2024. Pre-registration is NOT required.
