2022 Saint Paul Booya Schedule

Booya is a hearty stew cooked up in large cauldrons for fundraisers

Excerpts of  Jess Fleming’s article was Published on September 6, 2022


After the MN State Fair ends two seasons start, “Back to School,” and Booya.  The latter starts the weekend after Labor Day and usually runs to just before the General Election in November.

Booya might mean something to another part of the country but in the Upper Midwest it means a thick stew that is mixed and cooked up in a giant vat, or 55 gallon drum and served at non-profits and churches by the bowl until it’s gone.


If your organization is holding a Booya, please send your information to eat@pioneerpress.com, and Jess Fleming will add it to their list.

While Booyas are not political in nature, we’ll add an extra notation of what Minnesota House District in Saint Paul or a nearby suburb each Booya is located in case your House District group wants to meet there.
