Join us for a literary picnic lunch to celebrate eight full years of the Twin Cities Literary Calendar! Rain Taxi and The Commons will be providing soft drinks and snacks, tables and chairs; you can drop in any time, and feel free to bring along a picnic lunch or a food item to share. At 1 pm we’ll have a brief toast, some prize giveaways, and a few announcements from our Calendar Partners regarding some great upcoming author events, but mostly this is just a chance to hang out with others in the Twin Cities famed literary community — there’s no finer in the country!

PLUS: Let us know if you’re attending and then stop by our information table for a special item:


The Commons is located at 425 Portland Avenue South, Minneapolis — right next to US Bank Stadium. Rain Taxi’s LIT COMMUNITY PICNIC will take place on the west block of the park, in the reading area.


There is Metered Street Parking all around, and two ramps: Haaf Parking Ramp at 424 4th Street South, and Mills Fleet Farm Ramp at 740 4th Street South. Biking and transit are great options too, of course!
