Field Trip 2018

When it’s free, family-friendly, and full of fine art, you can’t ask for more. It’s true—Minneapolis Craft Market and Three Rivers Park District are heading to Silverwood Park for a field trip you won’t want to miss. With craft beers, poetry installations, musical entertainment, lawn Jenga, new sculptures, and of course, art, you’ll be sure to meet your maker.  Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. @ Silverwood Park, 2500 County Rd.

2018 Fall Dahlia Show

Ever seen a dahlia? It’s a flower—a gorgeous one—with a showy, flamboyant feel. You can see some of the best Minnesota growers have to offer at Bachman’s 2018 Fall Dahlia Show—a contest that searches for the most decadent dahlias. The contestants, all members of Minnesota Dahlia Society or an American Dahlia Society affiliated society, will have their blooms judged by accredited judges. But luckily for the public, they can stop by and view the flowers free of cost. Saturday, noon to 4 p.m., Sunday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. @ Bachmans on Lyndale, 6010 Lyndale Ave. S., Minneapolis, minnesotadahliasociety.com
