It’s not the toasted marshmallows or the clip-clop of horses pulling hay wagons. It’s not the music or the twinkling lights on the avenue. It’s the smile on your neighbor’s face and the cheerful greeting from someone you’ve never met that makes you realize you live in a wonderful place.
Holiday on 44th turns a dark winter night into a magical one. You can be part of the magic that brings neighbors together over roasted chestnuts and hot chocolate.
Now in its 18th year, “Holiday on 44th: An Old-Fashioned Camden Celebration” is a Minneapolis tradition. On the first Friday in December, from 6 to 9 pm, an ordinary city street turns into a twinkling wonderland. From music and crafts at Patrick Henry High School to face painters and magicians at Loring Community School, the street sparkles with cheer.
Artists perform in various locations along 44th Ave. N., which is closed to all automobile traffic for the evening. Horse-drawn wagons provide transportation between locations, giving the celebration a friendly and old-fashioned atmosphere. Music, magicians, fire jugglers, chestnut roasting and a fantastic craft fair make up a small portion of this diverse and exciting event that draws attendance from all over the metro area. Holiday on 44th is a FREE event.
Holiday on 44th has been produced annually by a dedicated group of volunteers in the Camden community of North Minneapolis. It uses the arts to promote understanding and friendships between the diverse peoples that make up our Camden, Minneapolis community. In addition, because the arts activities of our event has drawn more and more people to the community, an improved business climate has been noted along 44th Avenue North.
