Every summer, folks make the trek out to Square Lake for a day of film, music, and camaraderie. The Square Lake Film & Music Festival showcases short films and animation pieces from Minnesota makers, plus a few international creators. Highlights this year include Stillwater, an album by Frankie Lee, which he’ll perform live as an 8mm film of the same name screens. The Minnesota Astronomical Society will be stopping by with a high-powered telescope; live footage of the night sky will be projected onto the big screen as banjo player Michael Rossetto shares a new 15-minute song. The musical lineup includes the Cactus Blossoms, Black Eyed Snakes, the Owls, Saltee, David Huckfelt, and Lazy Scorcese. While people do drive and carpool to this event, over half will be traveling via bike, and that scores them a discounted ticket to the fest. Find more info at
