Summer Beer Dabbler is back for 2022 with a brand new venue: Harriet Island Regional Park! Located just across the river from Downtown Saint Paul, Harriet Island Park is situated along the banks of the mighty Mississippi River and features unparalleled views of its waters, as well as the skyline beyond.
Now that you know why it’s awesome, you only need to know one more thing: How to get there! Check out our tips below!
Our front gate will be located within Harriet Island Park, just past the pedestrian bridge and archway at 175 Water street that features the official “Harriet Island Regional Park” sign. Once you pass underneath the arch, proceed slightly to the right towards our front gates. Our Early Access gate will be located just to the left of our General Admission gate.
Driving: *Warning, Parking Will be Limited*
Parking around Harriet Island Park will be extremely limited, so make sure you plan ahead if you plan on driving.
Warning: While there are a variety of surface lots located adjacent to Harriet Island, these lots are privately owned and may not be open for parking during our event. Your best bet will be to park in one of the parking ramps or lots located in Downtown Saint Paul, and walk across the Wabasha or Robert Street bridge to Harriet Island.
There is a limited amount of street parking available near Harriet Island park along Plato Blvd., Water St., and Dr. Justus Ohage Blvd., but these spaces tend to fill up quickly, so make sure to plan accordingly.
As always, please plan a designated driver or sober ride home if you drive to any of our events.
We highly encourage attendees to consider using public transportation to get to Summer Beer Dabbler 2022! Metro Transit bus routes 62 and 75 stop at Wabasha and Water street, which is just a few short blocks away from our venue.
Additionally, Harriet Island is just a 15 minute walk across the Wabasha Bridge from the Green Line light rail’s Central station, making the train a great option for our attendees.
Plan your route and purchase Metro Transit passes via their website.
Using Ride Sharing Apps? Prepare for delays and additional costs!
Most major ride-sharing apps are still experiencing a shortage in drivers. That means your Lyft or Uber may cost more and take longer than you’re used to. Make sure to plan ahead!
Pro-Tip: To avoid surge pricing, driver pile-up, and other pick-up difficulties, we recommend waiting a few minutes and walking a short distance away from the venue before booking your ride sharing service.
