Head out to the Twin Cities’ most spectacular new park for a day of art, nature, and creative play with friends and family. Silverwood Park teams up with mnartists.org to offer a slate of activities: learn how to build a tree fort, get the basics on square-dancing, play with a giant parachute, or join a mega game of Capture the Flag. Hike with a park naturalist or canoe around the lake. Watch professional plein-air painters at work throughout the park—or make your own art at a special edition of Drawing Club, a popular weekly event at Walker Open Field. As the day winds down, enjoy a nature walk with readings by Minnesota poets and writers, a concert by indie power-poppers Wishbook, and acoustic performances at campfires around the park.
Stay for an hour or make a day of it at this back-to-nature celebration of our local artistic community. Enjoy fare from the Silverwood Café and various food trucks, or bring your own picnic (wine and beer are also permitted). Visit mnartists.org/fieldtrip for details, including a concert schedule and event itinerary.
