Doing Good Together Festival of Giving

  • Nicollet Island Pavilion 40 Power St Minneapolis, Minnesota 55401 (map)

DGT's unique community festival brings together a wide range of Twin Cities families to celebrate kindness and generosity! We're collaborating with a variety of local organizations to offer fun activities focused on “giving back.”

* Service Projects (similar to DGT's popular Family Service Fairs) to benefit local nonprofits including
** Assembling hygiene kits for Union Gospel Mission Twin Cities to help those experiencing homelessness
** Tying blankets and pillowcases for My Very Own Bed to help children and families transitioning into stable housing
** Braiding dog toys for ACT V Rescue and Rehabilitation.

* Multicultural performances from COMPAS and Kalpulli KetzalCoatlicue, Duniya Dance and Drum Company, and Tay Phuong Lions

* Giant cooperative art installation

* Interactive instrument demos with MacPhail Center for Music

* Kindness activities, product showcase

* Fun fundraising games and festival food & drink also available for purchase

Rain or shine, join other big-hearted families this fall to enjoy multicultural performances, take part in service projects that benefit local nonprofits, and play fun fundraising games to support DGT. Festival food & drink available for purchase.
