Summer might have celebrated its final hoorah this past Labor Day, but that doesn’t mean Edina celebrations should come to an end. Quite the contrary, in fact. No matter the season, our city never ceases to inspire and amaze, and it does so this weekend with artistic flourish.

A September signature, the Edina Fall into the Arts Festival welcomes the turn of seasons and, believe it or not, the 14th annual event is already here. This Friday and Saturday, Centennial Lakes Park will buzz with more than 250 artists and vendors, plus the many who’ll flock for their signature, handmade items.

Benefitting Edina Crime Prevention, we’ve got added incentive to support our local artists, and it will be extra easy to do. Exhibitors are required to be present and available throughout the festival, and they’re all happy to discuss their handmade items and originals. Expect photography, painting, woodwork, wearables, and more, making it easy to find that special something for you or your new Onyx home—maybe even an early holiday gift. It’s never too early to get a leg-up!

If your visit to the festival inspires the artist in you, there’s always an outlet not too far from home. Wine and paint nights are totally on trend, and an artisan brew never goes out of style. If you’re really looking to hone your craft, though, consider some of the arts classes available nearby.

The Edina Art Center is an easy, best bet when you’re itching for an artistic outlet. In addition to the art on display, classes are available year-round for newcomers and experienced artists alike. From painting to pottery, metals, jewelry, and more, there’s even open studio time available to hone your craft and collaborate with like-minds.

If you still haven’t had your share of arts, festivals, or fall, you’ll find even more when you venture just southwest to Sever’s Fall Festival in nearby Shakopee. Taking artistry to a whole new level, their giant corn maze is the second oldest in the nation, and they’re celebrating its 20th anniversary Fridays-Sundays, now through October 29.

Featuring straw sculptures, corn pits, live entertainment, and countless other draws to keep the whole gang engaged, the $28.00 season pass is a best bet; it pays for itself in two visits, and there’s a whole lot of fall ahead for repeat visits. Get playfully engaged and lost in the maze, or simply enjoy the fall air with a libation and a bite from one of the many food vendors onsite. You can even pick up farm fresh pumpkins, gourds, apples and other seasonal favorites while you’re there.

A turn of seasons can be a welcomed change—even more so for the attentive eye. Keep yours peeled for early, changing leaves while out exploring. Not too long now before they’ll be ablaze in fall colors!

Life is a blank canvas, and you need to throw all the paint on it you can.

There’s nothing like a long weekend to sink into the comforts of home, and we’re so happy you’ve made yours with us. With so many new faces in the community, we’re happy to host get-togethers like last week’s barbecue, and we look forward to all the good times ahead. If you’ve got an idea, our leasing team is always happy to hear it!


With the bit of added time this Labor Day weekend, we hope you’ll reserve some for getting out into the larger Edina community, too. There’s a lot to explore and even more to enjoy with the perfect balance of arts, dining, and outdoor leisure all just a short stroll or community cruiser ride from home—give one a try and head out on your Edina exploration.


Swing by 50th & France for some of the best boutiques, galleries, and shops, and be sure to mark your calendars for later in the month when Open Streets on 50th closes the strip and brings live entertainment, artistry, games, crafts, and more to the streets. This week, you can jump into the season’s final Yoga by the Fountain, followed by happy hour at Red Cow—a fun, Thursday night break from the workweek routine.


No community tour would be complete without a visit the Edina Art Center where you’re encouraged to check out some of the many arts classes on the fall calendar. From pottery to painting, drawing, and more, you’re sure to find something that fuels your creative spirit. Learning something new is always encouraged, and you’ll appreciate the added outlet as colder months begin to set in.


If you like golf, we’ve got that, too. In fact, Edina’s home to nationally recognized greens. Braemar Golf Course has been ranked Minnesota’s Best, and construction tours are now available for their 18-Hole Championship rebuild, scheduled to open next year. Their restaurant, Tin Fish, serves up sea fare in all fashions and hosts weekly events like Tuesday Night Trivia. The Edina Art Center teams up for a monthly Wine & Canvas Wednesday, too—a perfect convergence of worlds.


There’s a lot to like about Edina, and we hope you’ve found time for some exploration of your own. With seasons already beginning to shift, a fresh harvest of happenings will soon take summer’s place.

The close of summer means the end to summertime traditions, and it’s nearly time to close the book on Centennial Park favorites. Spare a Thursday to visit the trifecta while you still can!
