Party with fellow TBEX attendees at Harriet Island Regional Park for our closing TBEX North America party. Located on the banks of the Mississippi River, in the shadows of the Saint Paul skyline, the park will be the setting for an evening of fun, food trucks, and fresh suds!
Saint Paul is the capital city of the headwaters state of the iconic Mississippi River. The city is located in the Mississippi National River & Recreation Area (MNRRA), one of the many parks in the National Park Service system that celebrates its centennial in 2016. Don’t miss this centennial celebration on the Mississippi River!
Enjoy local beers brewed in Minnesota, and specifically Saint Paul, paired with delicious creations from its growing food truck scene – and of course, what’s a birthday celebration without a birthday cake. Rock out to the local sounds of the White Iron Band and their hit “Minnesota Song,” as well as popular Minnesota outdoor games like Corn Hole, Hammerschlagen, and Beersbee. The party takes place at Wigington Pavillion on Harriet Island– named after Harriet Bishop the first public school teacher in the state of Minnesota and Clarence Wigington, the nation’s first African-American municipal architect.
You’ll have an opportunity to interact with representatives of some of Saint Paul’s biggest and best attractions and learn about the connection with the river, the flourishing theatre scene, the city’s gangster past and the craft beer craze. Take your photo with your toes in the mighty Mississippi or enjoy short paddle wheeler cruises on the river with Padelford River Boats (8:00pm, 8:45pm and 9:30pm). This is your chance to experience the power and majesty of the Mississippi river first hand.
The closing party is a family friendly event. TBEX badges are required of all adults and will be checked. Children under the age of 18 will be permitted at the closing party (without a registration badge) provided they are accompanied by a registered adult.
