The Art Sled Rally!

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 Powderhorn Park Community Center. These workshops are on:

  •  Sunday, Jan 12th 12-4pm
  •  Sunday, Jan 19th 12-4pm
  •  Friday, Jan 24th 3pm-8pm

Regardless of snow conditions, the Annual Art Sled Rally is held on Saturday January 25th, on the western slopes of beautiful Powderhorn Park in South Minneapolis from 2-5pm.
