About

Briggs Outdoors is a family-owned outdoor adventure and event venue on 560 acres of wooded bluffs, meadows, farmland, and creek bottoms. The farm was one of the first in Winona County, established in 1854 by Norwegian immigrants Halvor and Kari Myhre.

Today, the Briggs family has transformed the original farmhouse and surrounding area into a pristine event venue perfect for outdoor weddings, outdoor parties, corporate events, family reunions, and more.

A large patio area and expansive lawn offer plenty of room for party tents, tables, lawn games, bonfires, and dancing under the stars. The parking area easily holds more than 60 vehicles. And with more than 15 miles of trails, guests have plenty of room to explore the area’s wildlife, including red-tailed fox, whitetail deer, trout, dozens of bird species, butterflies, and wildflowers. A small herd of grass-fed cattle also makes its home on the farm.

And have you heard about Briggs’ famous outdoor wood-fired pizza oven? Nothing beats fresh-made pizza, hot out of the oven.

Whether you’re visiting for a one-day event or staying a week, host Steve Briggs wants you to have the best experience possible. Feel free to contact him with questions at (507) 450-9902, or use the contact form to reserve your event today.
