Our free festival celebrates the monarch butterfly amazing 2,300 mile migration from Minnesota to Mexico with music, food, dance, hands-on art, native plant sales and plenty of opportunities to get up close with monarch butterflies, learn about their habitats, and what you can do to make a difference. The 11th Annual Celebration is co-hosted by the Nokomis East Neighborhood Association and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board.
This year’s Monarch Festival will occur on Saturday, September 7, 2019, from 10 am to 4 pm. The Festival will be held just east of the Lake Nokomis Community Center in the area bounded by E. Minnehaha Parkway, Woodlawn Boulevard, and E. Nokomis Parkway.
