Come to Kenny Park for the annual Ice Cream Social and — new this year — Green Fair! This celebration of summer happens on Thursday, June 22, 6-8 p.m. at Kenny Park next to the playground. In case of rain, we’ll share messages here and on social media the day of the event. We hope you can make it to our favorite event of the year!
Ice Cream Social
Enjoy free Sebastian Joe’s ice cream, story time with Hennein County Master Gardeners at 6:30pm, and a fabulous concert from the Crosstown Community Band at 7pm. Several ice cream flavors plus a GF/DF option will be provided. Sir Sydney Soapington, the Baron of Bubble; and Lady Rainbow of Balloon will also be at the park to delight neighbors with artistic bubbles and special balloon creations. Many thanks to City Church for sponsoring the ice cream! As always, they are a fantastic community partner in the neighborhood.
While you enjoy ice cream, learn from Hennepin County Master Gardeners, Adopt a Drain, Minneapolis Solid Waste & Recycling, Minneapolis Park Foresters, Electrify Everything, and more! Find ways to reduce your household’s environmental impact, improve our local water quality, and take action on climate change. Thanks to the Kenny Environmental Committee for organizing this exciting addition to our beloved annual event!
Special thanks to Field Outdoor Spaces and All Energy Solar for sponsoring the Green Fair — this event wouldn’t be possible without their generous support!

One of the best ways to support our small but mighty neighborhood organization is to serve on the KNA Board! Sign up now through May 13 here.
May 2 Open House at Book Club: meet current KNA Board Members and learn more about getting involved while enjoying free food at Book Club (5411 Penn Ave S) on Tuesday, May 2 at 7:00pm.
The KNA Board is a fabulous group of volunteers who live all over Kenny and get together on the third Thursday of each month to help keep our neighborhood informed, advocate on behalf of Kenny and plan free events that bring our community together. Board members also have the opportunity to meet with city and other government officials at KNA meetings and have direct input to comment and guide activities being presented to the board for review and input.
The KNA would love to have your energy and enthusiasm in the group, so please consider getting involved this year! Members of underrepresented communities are especially encouraged to run, including renters, seniors, residents with disabilities, and residents who identify as LGBTQIA+ or BIPOC.
