Thank you to everyone who participated in 2022's exciting Medallion Hunt!


Welcome 2022 medallion hunters!

Thank you for joining us on this year's medallion hunt. The Spirit of the Lakes Medallion Hunt has been a huge part of our festival over the years and we couldn't be more excited to bring it back this summer! The first two clues will be released June 25th & 26th at the bottom of this page. The others will be released every following weekend leading up to the festival!

Will you and your family have what it takes to crack the clues to find the medallion?


All ages are eligible. City of Mound employees, City Councilmembers and their immediate families are not eligible. Festival board members, staff and their immediate families are also not eligible due to potential involvement in clue distribution. Be respectful of property and have a grand time!

Look high - look low, but do not dig. No shovels needed here.
Nor climb above the earthen realm, so you can search with little fear.
A park, a road, a lakeside beach; where ever could I rest?
Public land is all in play for hunting - be my guest.
Respect all private property - and do not enter there.
You do not need to anyway, to find me in my lay.
From east to west, from north to south, both high and low in Mound.

Good luck to you and all who search exploring all around.


The first clues will be released at 9am on June 10th & 11th - All others will be released at 9am every
Saturday & Sunday leading up to the festival.


Stay tuned – the first clue will be released on June 10th 

In 2022 this game was intentionally made harder than past hunts. The first clues are more obscure, with
the clues getting easier as the game goes on. Hiding it in something that needs to be opened also
makes it harder, at least on the players. If you’re hiding the medallion, it makes it easier since you
don’t need to find a good hiding spot, you can just 3D print one. Comments on this hunt are
welcome. Did you like it harder or think it should be easier?


We’d love to hear your thoughts on this year’s festival.
