30 Days of Giveaways

Over the next few weeks while many of us spend time online rather than together in-person, Visit Brainerd is offering a fun way to plan ahead.

We’ve purchased gift cards from our partners in the tourism industry—hotels, attractions, restaurants and breweries. Our “30 Days of Giveaways” will be held March 21–April 19, 2020. During the next 30 days we will be giving away a gift card each and every single day.

Daily registration is required.
