Outdoor Art Gallery
Citywide Arbor Day Celebration
Windom Park NE
Friday, April 29, 2023

Windom Park Citizens in Action (WPCIA) is partnering with the Minneapolis Park & Rec Board (MPRB) to host a citywide Arbor Day Celebration. This is an annual event that the MPRB coordinates with local hosts throughout the city as a celebration of trees and our relationship to the natural habitat within our city. The event will include the planting of nearly 100 trees throughout the park and neighboring Pillsbury School, a beer garden serving NE beers sponsored by Brewing a Better Forest, tasty eats from several great local food trucks, tree climbing, a fun run via the Run for Beer Series, Ask-an-Arborist walks, bucket truck rides, loads of tree-related lawn games, the Arborists (brass band in a tree) and the Brass Messengers (New Orleans style marching band). The event will close out with an outdoor movie at dusk.

Based on past celebrations, we are planning for approximately 1,000 attendees. We would also like to have our Northeast artist community represented in this event and are making plans to have an Outdoor Art Gallery to host 8-10 artists displaying their work throughout a designated pathway. Whether paint, print, photography, assemblage, craft or other mediums, artists will be stationed near trees, park tables, pergolas or outside the park building. Attendees will be provided a simple map with artists’ names and contact info. Artists are welcome and encouraged to display art for sale.

We hope you’ll consider becoming a part of this fun and engaging community event! If you have any questions or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact us using the contact information below.
