James J. Hill, one of the more colorful and controversial characters in Lake Minnetonka's history, brought his great Northern Railroad to the small village of Wayzata in 1857. Soon, Wayzata blossomed into a great tourist destination.

Every year, in September, Wayzata celebrates the turning point in her history with a series of events including; an arts & crafts fair, dachshund races, a coaster cart derby, children's activities, lots of food, a parade and much, much more!
