On the first day of summer, take advantage of the daylight as Rock the Garden celebrates the biggest birthday party of the season—the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden turns 20! Singer-songwriter Andrew Bird and band top a bill that also features Canadian indie rock supergroup the New Pornographers and the eco-conscious, Twin Cities favorite Cloud Cult. Opening the event is Bon Iver, a soulful lo-fi folk artist from northwest Wisconsin.

Enjoy an array of outdoor food and refreshments—crepes from Vincent, fresh selections from Chipotle, and beer from Summit Brewing Company.

This all-ages, rain-or-shine street party includes live broadcasts from DJs of 89.3 The Current, more than 40 works of art in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, and the On the Green: Artist-designed Mini Golf course will also be open from 4–6 pm with concert ticket (additional mini golf fee applies).

All ticket sales are final. Rock the Garden will be held rain or shine.

Orders received by June 13 will be mailed; all other orders will be held at Will Call near the Spoonbridge and Cherry in the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden.
