Northern Spark is a late-night, participatory arts festival that lights up the Twin Cities in early summer.

In early June, tens of thousands of people gather throughout the city from dusk to dawn to explore giant video projections, play in temporary installations in the streets, and enjoy experimental performances in green spaces. Late into the night the city surprises you: friendly crowds, glowing groups of cyclists, an unexpected path through the urban landscape, the magic of early morning after a night of amazing art and experiences.
