Food, Fun and games are everywhere. On Sunday, a parade in the afternoon caps off the event.

The city had the first Rod and Gun Club in the county; and the name "Rod and Gun Club" was instituted by Jack Crow, who, with four other individuals, began the club in 1890. The club is still active today and has a membership of about 100. "Before You Go" is a tribute and "thank you" for their bravery, gallantry and sacrifices that assure the continued enjoyment of freedoms unprecedented in the history of mankind.

Osseo celebrates Lake Martha Days named after the lake that goes through their town, Eau Claire has Sawdust City Days because of the early lumbering industry that was there, and Augusta has Bean and Bacon Days because Bushes Beans processes beans there.

On Memorial Day, the American Legion and VFW conduct a cemetery service following the parade at Thompson Valley through downtown Osseo. Believing that Osseo sits in a perfect place with great snowmobiling in any direction, the Osseo Sno-Drifters encourage snowmobilers to enjoy our lovely area of northern Trempealeau County. Get out in any direction from Osseo, and enjoy some great snowmobiling, horsepulling race, Family Music & Comedy show etc.
