Welcome to
The City of Kensington, MN



Established in 1887, the City of Kensington, Minnesota is full of history. Our “claim to fame” is the Kensington Runestone, believed to have originated in 1362 by Norse explorers. We celebrate this historic artifact every June during Runestone Days with a parade, street dance, food, and much more.

We have a thriving business community, churches and schools to attend, a beautiful city park, and much more. There’s a lot to do in Kensington, so find out more about us here and come and visit soon!
