August 25th, 2012, 3pm - 9pm

Join us on Saturday, August 25th at Pat's Tap (3510 Nicollet Avenue-Minneapolis) very first block party featuring Sideshow Soo: Interactive Carnival of Art from 3:00 - 9:00 PM. The festivites are free and will take place rain or shine. And yes, Pat will be there! 


SooVAC's interactive carnival celebrates the vibrant Minnesota arts scene with artist-created carnival games and oddities for all ages.This year's artists are busy at work creating a whole new lineup of games to dazzle and delight. Snap a picture with life-sized animal crackers in our giant photo booth, fish out of an over-sized mobile fishtank, and ride through a magic unicorn mountain. Have your fortune revealed by international fortune-telling sensation Zoraya, make your own spin art, dine on fantastic local fare, and much, much more.

How can you join in on the madness? Mark your calendars for August 25th! Help us to celebrate and support the vibrant Minnesota arts community and our fantastic gang of artists: Scott Artley, Michael Beachy, Aaron Brand, Jaime Carrera, Julia Caston, Tara Costello, Jennifer Davis, Mary Jane Mansfield, P.J. Maracle, Robin Schwartzman, Joan Vonderbruggen and Nancy Waller.
