Memorial Day Weekend in #MYSAINTPAUL

Memorial Day Weekend in #MYSAINTPAUL

Looking to make plans for the long weekend? Here are some of our recommendations on how to celebrate Memorial Day in the capital city.

1. Minnesota State Capitol Mall Walking Tour

The State Capitol Mall includes eighteen acres of green space. Over the years, monuments, memorials, and works of art have been added to the mall recalling events, remarkable acts, and achievements of Minnesotans. Learn all about it with the Capitol Mall walking tour.

2. Historic Fort Snelling

Memorial Day Weekend is one of the biggest events of the year at Historic Fort Snelling. Explore the grounds and interact with costumed interpreters as they reenact important stories in the site’s history. Play historic games on the parade grounds (including a kids' scavenger hunt) and check out demonstrations, including cannon firings, hearth cooking and blacksmithing. Saturday, May 23-Monday, May 25.

3. St. Paul Saints

Take the family out to the ballgame at CHS Field. The convenient home stretch provides an opportunity to catch all the antics of the St. Paul Saints on Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Sunday's Memorial Day Celebration will feature a post-game Monster Food Truck Rally and fireworks show. Friday, May 22-Sunday, May 24.

4. Como Zoo

It's always a good weekend to go to Como Zoo, voted Minnesota's top attraction in 2017. In addition to the animal attractions and fun at Como Town, you can test your skills at Como Park’s “Putt’er There” mini-golf course which also opens Memorial Day weekend. Friday, May 22-Monday, May 25.

5. Farmers’ Market

Whether it be Memorial Day weekend or any weekend, you really can’t go wrong with a trip to the Farmers’ Market. The Downtown market brings Lowertown to life each Saturday and Sunday with 100% locally grown flowers, produce, baked goods and more. Saturday, May 23-Sunday, May 24.

6. Patio Relaxation 

If organized fun isn’t really your thing, keep it casual and soak up the warm weather on one of Saint Paul’s top patios. Ox Cart and W.A. Frost are two of our favorites, but you can find a more complete listing on our patios blog.
