Fish Fest Updates

Fish Fest is such a long-standing tradition in Lyndale that I don’t have much to figure out as the main LNA staff organizer for this year’s event.

We know, after so many years of this community-organized event, that what folks want is to come together for delicious fish tacos, music, and great conversation with their neighbors.

I’m excited to share the few details about the food, music, event and that will be changing for this year.

This year’s Fish Fest will take place on Saturday, June 15th from 5:00 to 8:30 pm. As always, the festivities will take place on 33rd Street between Garfield & Harriet Avenues – right in front of the Garfield Aquarium building. 

We’re just starting to plan this year’s celebration, but we’re sure that great food, cool music, fun activities and your favorite neighbors will be part of this year’s event!  You can also be sure that it will be a low-waste event, since we’ll be using compostable cups and utensils and we’ll have compost bins brought in from the City of Minneapolis. 

This year’s Fish Fest will take place on Saturday, June 16th from 5:00 to 8:30 pm. As always, the festivities will take place on 33rd Street between Garfi eld & Harriet Avenues – right in front of the Garfield Aquarium building.

This year’s Fish Fest will feature Hot Club of Minneapolis, which will be a new musical act for the event. Hot Club of Minneapolis plays gypsy jazz and ws recently featured as a part of the Hosmer Music Series. El Meson’s famous Fish Tacos will be back. To help round out the meal, we are also asking people to bring cornbread or a dessert to share.

Volunteer Special

Party People:
Help us carry out our Dia del Niño for 2014!  This child-centric favorite features everything that you need for a great afternoon of family fun.  Meet new neighbors, say hello to old ones, and perhaps even win a dance off sponsored by clowns.  That sounds like a good day.  A shift for every talent, a task for everyone.  We need help in set up, food service, activity associates, tear down, and general merry making.  Contact aryca@lyndale.org to join the fun!
