Bonfire at night

You’re Invited to a Winter Bonfire

After weeks of unseasonably warm weather, winter has finally arrived in the Twin Cities. And what better way to warm up than with a bonfire at Como Park in St. Paul?

Come mingle with members of the board of directors and volunteer writers and podcasters, and meet new friends.

Mark your calendars! Saturday, January 27, 2024, 4 to 7 p.m., at the Como Park fire pits, near the corner of Hamline Avenue North and Como Avenue. We encourage attendees to bring a snack or canned beverages to share with others.

Getting There

Metro Transit:
Route 3A: Runs every 30 minutes (every hour after 7 p.m.) between downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul. The 3A is the most convenient; the 3B and 3S are over a half-mile away at their closest point. The closest stop is Como Avenue and Como Park Pool, just east of Hamline Avenue.

Route 83: Runs every 30 minutes along/near Lexington Avenue in St. Paul and Roseville. This connects to the Green Line at the Lexington Avenue station. The last bus southbound is just after 6:30 p.m.; the last bus northbound leaves Lexington/University at 7 p.m. and Como Park shortly thereafter.

Alternatively, the A Line‘s closest stop is Como and Snelling (an easy bike ride and about a 15-minute walk) and runs every 15 minutes.

Join the Fun!

The events committee is currently planning events for spring and summer. If you are interested in volunteering to help plan, advertise and host our fabulous future events, email We will happily accept suggestions for future events, too.
