What is Mint Fest?
If you’re looking for a fun event to attend, the St. Johns Mint Festival is a must-see!
The annual St. Johns Mint Festival is a great opportunity for the entire family to get out and have some fun.
The Mint Festival is an annual event that celebrates all things mint. Held in the city park, the event features a wide range of mint-themed activities, from arts and crafts to flea markets. Thousands of people attend the festival each year, making it one of the biggest events in the city.
With activities ranging from concerts to tractor pulls, there’s something for everyone at the festival. And of course, no visit to the St. Johns Mint Festival would be complete without a bowl of Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream.
So mark your calendars and make plans to attend the festival the second weekend of August next year. You won’t be sorry you did!
Why Is Mint Fest Celebrated?
With rich, organic soil that is perfect for growing mint plants – the St. Johns area has been known as an excellent location to farm this crop due to its natural fertility and ideal climate.
As a result, many mint producers began operations in Clinton County in the 1900s.
Clinton County still ranks first in Michigan in terms of total mint production, and the city of St. Johns has long been known as “Mint City” and the “Mint Capital of the World.”
Today, Michigan mint is still prized for its high quality, and Clinton County remains at the forefront of mint production.
