Landmark Center

Landmark Center’s popular Urban Expedition program, which provides families with an opportunity to learn about the world right here in Saint Paul’s backyard, is entering its 14th year.  The five individual programs provide authentic cultural experiences that include music, dance, crafts and traditions from different destination countries.

This year France will be celebrated on Sunday, April 15 from 1-3 pm and the Alliance Française will be presenting. There will be wine tasting, croissants for sale, live music, fashion show presentation and five minute french lessons, as well as booths of various french cultural sites.

FREE and open to the public.

Children and adults alike receive a travel “passport” that will be stamped for each country in the series. Along with music and dance, each Urban Expedition features live animals native to the featured country, and language lessons.

Urban Expedition is a part of Sundays at Landmark, an event series produced by Minnesota Landmarks, the nonprofit programming and management agency for Landmark Center. Urban Expedition is sponsored by Ecolab, Minnesota Parent Magazine, Ramsey County, RBC Wealth Management, and Travelers, while being presented in partnership with Global Minnesota.
