The Minneapolis Aquatennial, often called “The Best Days of Summer”, is an annual outdoor event to celebrate the city’s famous lakes, rivers, and streams.
Experience Upper St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam like never before! For the first time in the locks history, enjoy a picnic on the lock wall surrounded by panoramic views of the falls, explore the visitor center, interact with National Park Service rangers, and discover the history and impact of the falls on Minneapolis and the nation.
Bring your own food or purchase from the nearby Mill City Market or an Aquatennial vendor outside of the Lock. Some blankets provided or bring your own and enjoy the views!
This event is hosted by the National Park Service and Mississippi Park Connection.
