History:  

OTSEGO Township, first settled in October 1852, organized in 1858, and its city in sections 17 and 18, on the Mississippi, were named for a lake, a township, and a county in New York. Henry Gannett notes this name as an Indian word, meaning "welcome water," or "place where meetings are held." The city was platted on 400 acres in May 1857 and incorporated in 1875 as a village. The post office operated 1856-57 as Berling and then as Otsego, 1857-1901.

Events:
Otsego Prairie Festival and Car Show

There will be exhibitors, activities and entertainment for the whole family to enjoy throughout the day including many new attractions and food vendors together with familiar favorites from previous years. The Otsego Prairie Festival starts at 10:00 a.m. and continues throughout the day culminating with a fireworks display at dusk. Last year’s Otsego Prairie Festival was an overwhelming success in terms of an increased number of attractions and vendors that in turn promoted large numbers of people to attend. We hope you and your family enjoyed the Prairie Festival and wish to extend our thanks again to the sponsors and vendors for their support of the Otsego community and the Otsego Prairie Festival.
