Minneapolis Arbor Day Celebration
April 29 @ 4:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Annual spring celebration shifts to the streets at block party along Third Street North between Fifth and Sixth Avenues
The 2022 Minneapolis Arbor Day Celebration brings an entertaining evening in appreciation of trees to North Loop neighborhood on Friday, April 29, 4-8 pm! After a two-year pandemic hiatus, this year the award-winning, traveling festival shifts out of the park and into the streets with a block party planned along Third Street North between Fifth and Sixth Avenues.
Supporting street trees is the focus of this year’s Minneapolis Arbor Day Celebration. The Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board (MPRB) is responsible for all trees planted on public property in Minneapolis, which includes all trees on park land, but also approximately 200,000 trees that line 1,100 miles of city streets and parkways.
The MPRB is teaming up with partner organizations that support the city’s urban trees to educate festival-goers on how to help trees survive and thrive in urban environments. The event is being held on a stretch of Third Street North that was recently rebuilt, so people will have opportunities to help plant new trees along the freshly paved street and learn about urban tree care.
An initial rundown of activities and attractions is below. Share this event with anyone who may be interested at minneapolisparks.org/arborday.
Join MPRB Arborists for tree planting excursions leaving every half hour, 5-6:30 pm.
