Join us for a Canoe Parade Workshop at the Plains Art Museum’s Center for Creativity! This event is an open house style maker’s session. When you arrive, you will receive an 11-inch canoe model and access to a buffet of supplies to spark your imagination. Artist Hosts will be available to provide inspiration and support to help sketch out your ideas and assist in selecting materials. At the end of the evening, the canoe is yours to take home to use as inspiration for a life-sized version in the upcoming parade.
Each registrant will receive a canoe. Multiple attendees can work on one canoe, but only one person will need to register. Parade attendance is not required. This event is free and family friendly. The suggested donation of $10 helps us cover the cost of the model canoes.
The Canoe Parade connects participants and spectators to the river that has shaped the Fargo Moorhead area with a procession of decorated vessels. The 2019 parade takes place on Sunday, September 29th at 2:00 pm from Viking Ship Park at the Hjemkomst Center to the Bridge at Riverfront Park/Oak Grove Park.
