The Third Ward Neighborhoodfest will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 10 at Nicollet Island Pavilion from 5:30–9 p.m. The event, which Councilmember Diane Hofstede was conceived as a way for Third Ward residents to meet with business and community leaders, will feature the participation of various city agencies, area businesses, organizations and projects.
“The idea is really to have an opportunity to talk to your neighborhood leaders,” said Hofstede. ”It’s about networking, it’s about getting businesses established.”
Hofstede said attendees can expect to see everything from the mascots of Minnesota’s major sports teams to a presentation by the developers working at the Pillsbury A Mill site. Businesses like Clay Squared will exhibit, as will Segway tour company Human on a Stick, Body in Balance Massage and Catholic Eldercare. Food vendors include Red Stag Supper Club, Psycho Suzi’s, Gardens of Salonica, Sentyrz Supermarket and more.
The Third Ward Neighborhoodfest is free and open to all.
