Golden Raspberry Medallion

Hunt for the Golden Raspberry

Each year a medallion about the size of your palm is hidden somewhere in Hopkins during the festival. The person who finds it first earns a $500 cash prize. You must be wearing a current Raspberry Festival button to claim the prize.

Clues to finding the medallion will begin appearing Monday, July 10, 2017. The clues will be posted on this website at 8:00am each day.

Changes to the contest this year

The hunt this year will feature picture clues that will be posted in different Hopkins businesses (and the website) for the first four days of the hunt. Each picture is like a puzzle piece, when put together, is the main clue as to where to find the Golden Raspberry.

The first puzzle piece will be posted at Driskill’s Downtown Market on Monday, July 10 at 8:00am.  From there, each proceeding clue’s location and posting time will be included with that day’s photo.  All the puzzle pieces will be posted at different businesses and locations each day.  On Friday, July 14th the final directive will reveal just how close you are to the medallion!

The medallion will be hidden outdoors on public property within the city. It will not be hidden more than five feet high and will be visible for all to see. Property should not be damaged during the search, and festival volunteers and their families are ineligible.

In addition, Previous winners of the contest are not eligible to participate in the following two (2) years after winning the contest.

Good luck and happy hunting!
