A beautiful new $12 million venue, located between two quarries in Waite Park, Minnesota, is now available to host up to 6,000 guests for outdoor entertainment. The Ledge Amphitheater is a must-see attraction for guests to experience the beauty of this region while enjoying national and local events such as music concerts, comedians, movies in the park, vendor shows, community events and several other acts and performances. 

Amenities include reserved seating for corporate events, a VIP area next to the main stage, a dedicated space with kitchen for performers and their crews, and five dressing rooms. Private event rentals are available as the venue’s calendar allows. 

The Ledge also is conveniently close to the 684-acre Quarry Park and Nature Preserve featuring recreation trails, fishing, picnic areas, scenic woodlands, open prairie, wetlands, granite reflecting pools and more.  

The 2022 Explore Minnesota Tourism Conference, held on March 1 at the Sheraton Minneapolis West Hotel, featured both in-person and virtual learning for representatives of tourism organizations, attractions, lodging properties and other entities. The gathering kicked off with remarks by Gov. Tim Walz and Explore Minnesota Director Lauren Bennett McGinty. 

 

D’Amico Catering has returned to Walker Art Center as the exclusive culinary and planning service for all private events taking place at the museum. The Minneapolis-based catering company managed the Walker Art Center’s special events and food service from 2011-2016. 

 

The first time I tried axe throwing was at Brush Creek Ranch in Wyoming at a memorable outdoor dinner along the river. It was a fun way to get to know other guests at the ranch, with no one being much of an expert at hurling an axe but most being willing to give it a try. However, there is no need to go to a ranch or Wyoming to try this fun team-building activity when FlannelJax’s and Bad Axe Throwing both provide options in Minnesota and beyond.
