Arctic Cat Celebrates 50 Years
Arctic Cat to Celebrate 50th Anniversary in July


Arctic Cat will celebrate the brand’s 50th Anniversary as thousands of loyal Arctic Cat enthusiasts converge upon Thief River Falls, Mn on July 29th and 30th. The celebration will be open to the public and all events are free.

Arctic Cat’s 50th marks a major milestone which began in 1961 when Edgar Hetteen founded Polar Manufacturing in Thief River Falls. There he began producing snowmobiles that reflected his dreams. One year later he changed the company name to Arctic Cat, and began a series of innovations that transformed hulking snow “machines” into small, playful snowmobiles.

Arctic Cat has two days of non-stop activities planned in Thief River Falls, much of it concentrated in the space between the Pennington County Fairgrounds and the Ralph Engelstad Arenas.

Highlights will include factory tours on Friday and Saturday, the world’s largest Arctic Cat product display called “Years of the Cat” which will be open to all Arctic Cat–related products regardless of model or year, an Arctic Cat-only swap meet, ATV and UTV demo tracks, special 50th Anniversary clothing and memorabilia will be sold, autograph sessions with Team Arctic heroes, race truck displays and several events for kids, plus music, food and much more.

Hotels are already filling up quickly so make your reservation now. For a listing of local lodging and camping opportunities in Thief River Falls, please log on to www.visittrf.com.  For other nearby areas: www.visitcrookston.com, www.visitgrandforks.com and www.shootingstar.com.

If you are interested in the swap meet or showcasing product in the “Years of the Cat” display, please contact Joel Hallstrom at jhallstrom@arcticcatinc.com.
