Sociable Cider Summer Block Party – 2019

– Funk Fest Returns to NE MPLS –

Let the summer festivals begin!

Sociable Cider is hosting their annual Funk Fest again this year, featuring an outdoor stage headlined by a huge lineup of local musicians.

This all-day, family-friendly event will feature multiple food trucks and special ciders as well.  Thrifty Hipster HIGHLY recommends this event to everyone. Ride you bike down or park for free in the lot. It’s gonna be a lot of fun and a great way to (hopefully) kick off a full summer of great weather.
