The Hopkins Raspberry Festival has been an annual event, the third weekend in July, since 1935. It was started as a way to bolter community during the depression at the height of raspberry-picking season. Nowadays, it brings together members of the community and celebrates everything that makes Hopkins special. There are plenty of events scheduled for the weekend, including the coronation of Raspberry Royalty, a Grande Day Parade, and a Marketplace Fair. There are food vendors who sell all kinds of fare and the festival is run by volunteers. It's a fun weekend for everyone.
