Food, Fish, and Fun
Join us for one of the best days of the year!
Mark Hinds

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.

This year we will have a great mix of activities. There will be kids’ activities, the name game will be back, as well as face painting and henna. We’ll also have a couple of special activities this year, including Carly Schmitt who is the artist for the Lyndale Box Wrap project and a special Live Nicollet table, where you can learn all about how you can support Nicollet businesses

Each year Fish Fest draws well over 350 people from the neighborhood together to honor the creation of public art at the Garfield Aquarium. A part of what makes the event so special, is that it is a uniquely Lyndale event that represents some of the best things about the neighborhood and its spirit of having fun, while getting things done! To help you get excited for this year’s event check out a photo gallery from last year at www.lyndale.org/fishfest. If you’d like to help plan or volunteer at this year’s event, drop Mark a line at (612) 824-9402, ext. 16 / mark@lyndale.org.
