DragonFest Carnival is THIS FRIDAY, APRIL 24 from 5:30 to 8:30 PM!
Monday, April 20, 2015 6:55 AM


We still have a lot of games to staff. Last year we had to cancel a few due to a lack of bodies. VOLUNTEER HERE for a short, fun shift. Don’t make children sad!

Want to buy your DragonFest tickets ahead of time? Pre-sale ticket tables will be set up the morning of the carnival, at both campuses, from 8:40-9:40 AM. We have more games, food, and attractions than ever, which range from 2 to 14 tickets each.

Thanks again to Kellie and Wendy, owners of Hair Police, for keeping the carnival salon alive! They both will be on site to masterfully adorn the kids with a rainbow of high-quality hair extensions (14 tickets each) that last for 2 months.

THE PEACEFUL PARENT LOUNGE in the UC MEDIA CENTER features soothing music, dim lighting, free coffee/decaf from our local Dunn Bros, sweet treats from Nightingale, seated-chair massage by Joe from HealthSource of Minneapolis Uptown, a small child chill zone and OUR LOCAL BUSINESS SILENT AUCTION

Even if your kids are old enough to brave the carnival on their own and you were planning to skip it, please come hang out in the lounge with us and bid like crazy on items from the following local businesses:
