The Powderhorn Art Sled Rally is one of my favorite events in the Twin Cities!
What the heck is a sled rally? “Watch the antics of outrageous never-tried-before art sleds*, or drop in yourself with a contraption of your own. Each sled and its creator will take to a decorated hill accompanied by throngs of spectators. Live music, a warming tent, hot chocolate and coffee will round out the afternoon’s activities.”
This recap video from 2011 also gives you a good idea of what to expect.
If you want to participate as more than a spectator, consider the upcoming Free Sled Making Workshops that are held at the Bedlam Design Center. These workshops are on:
- Saturday & Sunday, Jan. 24-25, 10am-3pm
- Tuesday, Jan. 27 & Thursday Jan 29 5-9pm
Regardless of snow conditions, the Annual Art Sled Rally is held on Saturday January 31st, on the western slopes of beautiful Powderhorn Park in South Minneapolis from 2-5pm.
