20th Annual Dances at the Lake Festival - July 15 to July 16

After a two-year interruption, the Ray Terrill Dance Group presents the 20th annual Dances at the Lake Festival—two free concerts at the Rose Garden at Lake Harriet, open to the public.

Friday and Saturday, July 15 and 16

The festival features a variety of dance forms performed by both professional adult and youth companies. The “stage” for the shows is the large grassy area between the two fountains near the Rose Garden at Lyndale Park Garden. Audience members are invited to bring a lawn chair or blanket and some snacks, drinks or a picnic to enjoy the unique opportunity of seeing dance performed at the Rose Garden.
