  • White Bear Lake County Park White Bear Lake, MN 55110 (map)


Join Minnstameets this Saturday for an exclusive look at the Art Shanty Projects on White Bear Lake! Visit the shanties, meet the artists, and enjoy treats from @sevensundaysmn and @blackeyeroastingco all before the crowds roll in!

Below are a few details about the @artshantyprojects from Jill who is working as their staff photographer this year!

    •    It is about 30-40 minutes from Mpls

    •    To get there, use google maps with "White Bear Lake County Park 51110" 

    •    It will take you to a park with a large lot where you can leave your car

    •    The shanties are on a frozen lake - but only about a block or two from shore.

    •    There is a very well plowed path leading out to the shanties.

    •    There are no bathrooms on the ice, but several back on shore.

    •    There will be a food truck or you are welcome to bring your own snacks, food, beverages. 

    •    White Bear Lake is a super cute town with a lot of restaurants and shops. 

    •    If you have kids, a rugged jog stroller could work, but a sled would be great too!

    •    Dress like you are going sledding: ski gloves, snow boots, hats, etc. There can be a little more wind on the ice than on shore.

    •    Non-service dogs are discouraged.

    •    Each shanty has artists inside and a different theme. They invite you into their shanty to interact. There's even a dance shanty! 

    •    There are several ongoing performances like magic shows and parades - see their site for details

    •    Truly fun for all ages
