The Great Minnesota Picnic Together

August 16, 2020 - August 23, 2020

Get Together Outside or Online with Your Refugee Friends

Picnic Week: Sunday August 16 – Saturday August 22

Do you miss getting together with your refugee friends? We do!

During these challenging times, how about planning a picnic virtually or in-person during Arrive Ministries official Picnic Week! The Great Minnesota Picnic Together is a creative way for you to connect with your refugee friends while maintaining safe distancing measures either outdoors or online.

Celebrate your friendship and the end of summer together in a safe way!


Suggestions for your Great Minnesota Picnic Together:

  • Bring a blanket and meet in a park or a backyard
  • Bring snacks, a meal, or take-out (consider ordering from an immigrant-owned restaurant)
  • Bring bubbles, sidewalk chalk, kites, hoola-hoops
  • Set-up yard games that let you keep physical space (ex. bean bag toss)

Maintain Social Distancing Best Practices:
