GROUNDS & SOUNDS is a neighborhood art and music festival presented by Groundswell, a cafe located on the corner of Thomas and Hamline Avenues in the Midway neighborhood of St. Paul. The festival started in 2010 as an annual music and art festival for the community surrounding the cafe. It’s become a celebrated neighborhood event that has grown year after year. The festival returns on August 20th for its sixth year bringing local music, art, and handcrafted food together in a neighborhood celebration for all ages and tastes.
