We are very excited to announce our first large scale fundraiser, HeART of the PARK. On Friday, August 17th HeART of the PARK will run in conjunction with our final ‘Round the Bend concert of the season featuring Sawtooth Brothers with Stanton West.

There are two types of tickets available: 
1. VIP, $65
2. General Admission, $15 (children 12 and under are free)

VIP tickets not only help support the Park, but you will get to experience our ‘Round the Bend performance in a whole new way. Your ticket includes designated parking, special seating, dinner and drinks provided by ZZQ Smokehouse, dessert provided by Nothing Bundt Cakes and much more! There are a limited number of VIP tickets available! Make sure to get yours now before they run out!

General admission tickets give you all the same great music and access to purchase beer from Bald Man Brewing and food from the evening’s food trucks, O’Cheeze, Northbound Smokehouse and Nothing Bundt Cakes, that you are used to.

Why You Should Support Caponi Art Park

Caponi Art Park was conceived as an outdoor laboratory to teach and demonstrate how creativity is an essential part of daily living. From 1949 to 2013, Anthony Caponi, park founder, sculptor and Macalester Collegeart professor, devoted himself to organically integrating art, life and nature into a 60-acre sculpture and a center for all the arts. Today, Caponi Art Park serves over 18,000 visitors annually, providing high quality opportunities for engagement in a variety of arts experiences for a rapidly growing and diverse community. While Caponi Art Park may have begun as the work of one person it has become a thriving organization that is embraced by the community and all the stronger for its clear mission. The Park is a leading cultural center in the south metro area, and a model for other communities who have been inspired by Caponi Art Park’s successful community collaborations and creative place making.

Family Friendly
Unique to the South Metro
Provides a venue for local artists
