LOCATION: Minnesota Valley National Wildlife Refuge
3815 American Blvd. East, Bloomington

Set overlooking the beautiful Minnesota River Valley, this free, family friendly, zero waste event features interactive art and nature activities for all. EcoArts Fest engages kids and adults with fun activities that shed light on environmental issues through art making and show ways individuals can create change. Conveniently located on the Blue Line at the American Blvd. stop.

EcoArts Fest’s environmental focus is protecting our pollinators: bees, butterflies, and birds. The festival explores environmental changes and habitat loss of birds, monarch butterflies, bees, and more.

EcoArts Fest activities are created with residencies, workshops, and programming in the community with artists and naturalists months in advance of the celebration. Naturalist Larry Wade provides curriculum for students in residencies and their art reflects their environmental observations.

The day is a culmination of these activities and showcases the art, music, dance, and performances of youth and adults in response to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the natural world and our place in it.
