Our Festival of Giving is a one-of-a-kind event promoting kindness, service projects, and community collaboration

DGT's new one-of-a-kind community festival will bring together a wide range of Twin Cities families to celebrate kindness and generosity!

We are collaborating with a variety of local organizations to offer fun activities focused on “giving back.”

What a wonderful opportunity to put kindness into action! Stay tuned to updates and RSVP your "interest" in attending by visiting the event tab of our DGT-Twin Cities Facebook page. Be sure to follow these hashtags on social media too: #FestivalOfGiving #DGTfestival #ShareKindness

Activities will include:

  • Hands-on service projects to make on the spot, similar to those offered in our DGT Family Service Fairs. Projects will benefit important causes including supporting new mothers, fostering literacy, building food security, welcoming new immigrant neighbors, and caring for animals and the environment

  • Giant cooperative kindness art installation

  • Fun kid-friendly activities including t-shirt printing with The Teehive, temporary "kindness tattoos," a photo booth, and a service dog "meet & greet."  

  • Multicultural performances from COMPAS and Kalpulli Ketzal Coatlicue and Duniya Drum and Dance, along with instrument demos from MacPhail Center for Music

  • Clothesline of donated socks:  If you can, please bring a pair of new socks (any size) to hang on our community Sock Line. All socks will be donated to Simpson Housing Service.

  • Displays of big-hearted resources and products

  • Festival food and drink (e.g. corn dogs, mini donuts, and lemonade) available for purchase

Tickets: $5 each or $20 maximum per family
