Local Hunts

Medallion Hunts for other city festivals beyond the St. Paul Winter Carnival are becoming more and more common. Our goal is to encapsulate all of these hunts on this site, making it as comprehensive of a medallion hunting site as we can.

It should be noted that this is not a comprehensive list of Local Hunts, and while we strive to obtain all the clues, even the unpublished ones, and their explanations, not everyone is as understanding as we are with our Mock Hunts or as Ma Press is about her hunt when it comes to providing that information after the fact. Nonetheless, we'll post what we can get. We may not have all the hunts posted; we may not even have clues available. This list is simply a snapshot of the hunts we do know about and the clues that we have gathered over time. The Last Known Year column below shows the latest hunt that we have clues for. In some cases, even though we know about a particular hunt, we may not have any of its clues entered into the system yet. In that case, the column is blank.
