Arise + Shine 2019
Arise + Shine is back for 2019!
Kick-off this year’s Pride Parade in style at our fabulous pre-Parade party. We’ve got a new location this year and a slightly altered event—but we’re still here and ready for a great morning!
We’ll get your morning kicked into high gear with a light continental breakfast, a full bar, Arise Project swag, and special guests (to be announced!). This kick-off party will be intimate, fun, and tickets are more affordable than in years past!
Date: Sunday, June 23
Time: 8:30 – 11 a.m. (Parade begins at 11 a.m.)
Location: Shindig Event Center
Hennepin Avenue is under construction, so 2019’s Parade will happen along 2nd Avenue South. Due to a lack of event space on the new route, Arise + Shine will be your official kick-off party before you enjoy the Parade with friends and family.
Finding Shindig Event Space: Just one block from the Nicollet Ave Light Rail stop, Shindig is super easy to access via public transportation (which is FREE for Pride weekend). Shindig is also a half block off the this year’s Parade route, so you can easily stroll and find a good spot at 11 a.m.
Thanks to 3M, our generous corporate sponsor, 100% of your ticket price will be donated to the Arise Project at Greater Twin Cities United Way!
Also, a big shout-out to our media sponsor: Lavender Magazine. Make sure to visit Arise Project’s vendor table at Lavender’s Summer of Pride Kickoff Party on June 6.
Arise Project creates one-of-a-kind grants that empower nonprofits to keep homeless LGBTQ youth off the streets. We’re the only organization investing in this work here in the Twin Cities, and we need your help! Learn more about Arise Project.
