The Square Lake Film & Music Festival, four years ago, was my first bike camping trip! It is one of the highlights of my summer. I hope you'll come along for the 10th Anniversary of the Festival- you won't regret it!
The BEST thing about the Festival, in addition to camping and music and dancing and films... are that it is only $5 if you bike from the Cities! Tickets will sell out: Online advance tickets ($20), biker discount tickets ($5), and tickets at the door ($30). Kids 12 and under are free.
There is a SAG wagon that will take some of your gear out there for you if you register and meet up with one of the group rides:
Minneapolis bikers will meet at the HUB Bike COOP, 3020 Minnehaha Ave South, at 9:30 AM and depart at 10AM on Saturday the 11th. A sag wagon will be on hand to carry camping gear for registered riders.
St. Paul bikers will meet at Cycles For Change (formerly Sibley Bike Depot), 712 University Avenue St. Paul, at 10 AM and depart at approximately 10:30 AM when the Mpls bikers arrived. Summit will be on hand to transport camping gear for St. Paul bikers.
Icehouse will be catering the event this year. (But I always bring snacks anyway!) BYOB.
This is the schedule for the Festival:
