Live music, live animals, and an insect safari promise to make the The Cannon River Art & Water Festival the hit of the weekend. It all happens from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Riverside Park (corner of Poplar Street and W Eighth streets) in Northfield.
This family-friendly festival is a celebration of our rivers, lakes, and drinking water in southern Minnesota. You’ll hear music, create water-themed art, and discover the animals that call the Cannon River home. Adults and teens can check out the rainfall simulator, river table, and a groundwater simulator to learn about how water moves through the landscape and how we can help keep our water clean. New this year: the Minnesota Department of Agriculture will provide free well water testing for nitrates from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m..
10 a.m.-4 p.m. Family-friendly hands-on art and water activities, including the River Insect Safari, Fishing Printing and Water Windsocks
