LHiNC Fall Festival 2021
Come Celebrate Community on September 18
The Linden Hills Neighborhood Council (LHiNC) is excited to announce that it will host a community celebration at Linden Hills Park on Saturday, September 18 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The all-day festival will be slightly smaller than our traditional spring festival, which was cancelled in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns, but will maintain its spirit of fun and community.
To minimize public health risks and follow guidelines from the MN Department of Health, the Linden Hills Neighborhood Council requests that all non-vaccinated persons, including children:
- Keep at least 6 feet away from people from other households.
- Wear a mask if you cannot keep 6 feet away from others.
ENTERTAINMENT, ACTIVITIES AND DINING
More than 3,000 attendees are expected to attend and enjoy live music, amazing food, a beer garden and fun COVID-safe activities for kids. Food options will include Old Southern BBQ, Victor Hugo Tacos, Nashville Coop, The Purple People Feeder and Drew's Donuts. The Beer Garden, sponsored by Red Wagon Pizza, will offer adult libations.
Local civics and community organizations will be present, sharing their messages and visions to the community. Participants include:
- The League of Women Voters, hosting a voter registration table
- Friends of Linden Hills Library, offering a used book sale
- The Linden Hills History Study Group, offering walking tours at 12pm and 2pm. $5 suggested donation. Sign up here.
- The Linden Hills/Fulton Buy Nothing Group
- Metro Transit
- Minnesota Streetcar Museum
- Bakken Museum
- Southwest Community Education
Longtime festival attendees should note: This year’s smaller celebration will not include some traditional event favorites like the bike parade, silent auction, garage sale and the art fair and marketplace.
LHiNC has worked to develop new activity options to ensure that kids from the community can fully, and safely, participate.
Family and kid activities include:
- Arts and crafts projects from Heartfelt and Simply Jane/ArtAble
- A kids’ yoga class from YogaFit
- Kids’ storytime hosted by the Linden Hills Library
- Linden Hills Bocce Ball League will provide demos and lessons on the park bocce courts - a fun game for all ages!
LHiNC looks forward to celebrating community with our neighbors once again!
