2018 Eagan Art Festival
A juried art show of 100 artists, this free art festival is one of the premier events offered south of the river! Located at Central Park in Eagan, just minutes off interstates 35E and 494, the festival is easy to access with ample parking for all. The theme for the 24th Eagan Art Festival is Art & Nature and the festival will highlight some of the artists that use nature in their work. Artists on-site will also be able to talk to visitors about how nature informs the work that they do. The Children’s Activity Tent and Art Experience Tent Community Project will have a nature theme. Join us as we celebrate Art & Nature at the festival this June!

Eagan is very excited to welcome the Minnesota Vikings entire staff to their new home and headquarters, Viking Lakes. The Eagan CVB team had the pleasure of touring the training facility, Twin Cities Orthopedics Performance Center, this month and it’s safe to say everyone was thoroughly impressed! We were greeted by Mark Wilf and his son, Andrew Wilf, to kick off the tour. It started in the main lobby and snaked through the indoor practice field, the draft room and its wall comprised of 40 screens in total, the team locker room, the extensive workout and recovery facilities and the awe-inspiring auditorium. From all of the artwork to the materials and textures used, every little detail was woven together to align with the team’s mission: One Team, One Goal. Skol!
