Ulen Civic and Commerce
The Ulen Civic & Commerce is comprised of members of the town of Ulen, Minnesota. A vibrant community, Ulen is an ideal place to visit or call home. The mission of the Ulen Civic & Commerce is to promote Ulen and to make improvements to the community. One of the main projects of the Ulen Civic & Commerce is organizing the annual celebration on the third weekend in August – “Ulen Turkey Barbecue.” We give scholarships to Ulen-Hitterdal High School graduates and also sponsor a Christmas tradition, Santa Claus Day.
The town of Ulen is centrally located on the Western side of Minnesota. Surrounded by fertile farmland and beautiful scenery, we really can’t think of a better place to live and grow. With a community that is dedicated to creating an atmosphere for business growth and quality of life, Ulen is truly a diamond in Minnesota.
Turkey lovers from across the country will gather in Ulen to feast on nearly 3,000 pounds of delicious turkey roasted on the “World’s Longest Spit”. Entertainment, games, shopping, and our world famous barbecued turkey will make this year’s Turkey Barbecue a memorable event!
