LIONS ROAR is Back for 2022

September 9th & 10th
Lions Roar 2022 Starts Today

Osseo LIONS ROAR Weekend - Sept 9th & 10th

Barring Severe Weather - We're Partying Rain or Shine!

And, we're counting on this one to be one of our best events, yet, not because of a ton of new features and food - but because of YOU!

We're counting on a regional rally for one of the most popular end-of-summer events in the NW Metro and we hope to see you there!

- One of the most popular parades in the NW Metro
- Food, Snacks, Soda, Beer & Wine
- Crafts & Local Vendor Fair
- The Bean Bag Tournament is Back
- Activities & Jumpers in Leo's Adventureland
- NEW Sponsored Lion Riddle Scavenger at the Roar
- And, MORE!

News Release Guide to Roar Activities and Fun


We're out to exceed our attendance goals from 2021 with live entertainment, loads of food, and great festivities throughout the two-day event!


But we're going to need all hands on deck!

We're in need of both financial sponsors for this year's Lions Roar as well as volunteers to help with serving food, setting up, cleaning up, and monitoring Leo's Adventure Land!


Here's What We Accomplished in 2021

  • Over 70,000 tickets sold
  • Over 500 slices of pizza served
  • And more than $16K raised

Here's What You Can Expect This Year!
