Live music, locally sourced dinner, and activities at Eat For Equity's annual Wild Things Festival
Spend your weekend enjoying the outdoors with nonprofit Eat for Equity, as it hosts its second annual Wild Things Festival at Lily Springs Farm in Osceola, Wisconsin.
On July 26 and 27, you can enjoy a mini vacation to our neighbor state, where you'll partake in water activities, a chance to meet new people, and an opportunity to give back to the Twin Cities and surrounding communities.
The event includes a locally sourced dinner, late-night wood-fired pizza, and a farm breakfast, plus live music from local Twin Cities bands such as the Wailing Loons, your choice of physical activity ranging anywhere from stand-up paddle boarding to yoga, and even a home brewing demo. All of these adventures will come with a lovely lake view, and we're guessing pretty awesome company, not to mention a chance to camp out under the stars.
If that's not enough outdoor loving for you, you can even bike to the camp site with SPOKES Bike Walk Connect. If you want to limit your outdoors time to the event itself, parking will also be available.
Tickets to the Wild Things Festival are still available and range from $40 for just Saturday's festivities or $70 for the whole weekend, with discounts available for volunteers and groups.
Eat for Equity is a grassroots organization that hosts sustainable community meals across the country to raise funds and awareness for local and international nonprofit causes.
