Corcoran Grows: First Annual Springfest


When: Saturday, May 7th

Where: Corcoran Park

Time: 4-7pm

Why:  To celebrate the emergence from winter with our neighbors and the good folks of Corcoran GROWS. 

What:  Springfest has four distinct components! 

1.  3-5min, Rapid-fire TEDtalks -  Become educated and fascinated by the voices of our neighbors and their skills, passions and community work. 

2.  Garden/Garage Free Market – Air out that garage and bring us your unused or lightly used tools/seeds/plants/soil etc.  GROWS.jpgYou know what they say – one persons trash is another person's treasure!

3.  Dinner Potluck – We will provide a hot grill and meat for burgers.  Veggie option will be available. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share.  (You many bring anything you'd like for the grill that peaks your appetite or serves your dietary needs)

4.  Local Music – neighborhood musicians come together to jam out for us as we eat, connect and browse the free market.  Talent abounds in our great community!

Children's activities and playground supervision will be provided.

If you are interested in learning more about participating in our rapid-fire TEDtalks or volunteering for the event please contact Joe @ 612-722-6473 or email: [email protected].
