About This Place
Trimont is a city in Martin County, Minnesota, USA. The population was 747 at the 2010 census. The small community is located in south central Minnesota between Sherburn and St. James on Minnesota State Highway 4. Interstate 90 is nearby.
Trimont was once two different towns, platted by competing railroads. The two towns were Triumph, to the east, and Monterey to the west. These towns joined, using the first letters in each town's name, to form what is today known as Trimont. This gives Trimont the unique characteristic of two separate Main Street business districts which are on the same street, yet placed about a half-mile apart.
The yearly festival was once known as FunFest. Currently, the festival is called The Chocolate Festival, which is usually held in late July. There is live entertainment, a parade, community church services, and an array of food to be eaten. It is a wonderful family event for all.
