Sputnikfest at Rahr-West Art Museum

September 7 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm

On September 5, 1962 a 20 lbs. piece of Russian Sputnik IV landed in the middle of the street on the corner of N. 8th and Park. Sputnikfest is our way of bringing the community together to celebrate this momentous event.

Named one of the Top Five Funkiest Festivals in the country by Readers Digest, this wacky tacky festival has become a community and regional favorite, with fun for the entire family.

“Sputnik landed here…Why don’t you?”
