Chill Out Festival Launch Party


Join us to kick off The Great Northern 2023 with a “festival eve” outdoor winter village at Surly Brewing’s Beer Garden!

The outdoor event will offer a dynamic set by multidisciplinary producer DJ Yasmeenah and a participatory sing-along with Minnesota Public Radio’s Bring The Sing. Enjoy mouthwatering beverages and food from Surly, Vikre Distilling, Earl Giles, Caribou Coffee, and Scenic 61 by New Scenic Café, and Sioux Chef Catering, and wander the space to take in art projections by Montréal-based studio Iregular and installation art by Aaron Dysart commissioned by Green Minneapolis and Mississippi Watershed Management Organization. Bask in a Stokeyard Outfitters saunas or hot tub, tour an Xcel Energy tiny house, check out Polestar’s electric vehicles, play fashion bingo with Minnesota-based reseller Noihsaf Bazaar, and enter to win cash with FutureCard.

Get a taste of what’s to come for The Great Northern 2023 and beyond—invite your friends and celebrate the North with us!
