Special musical guest ZULUZULUU,
Northern Spark Launch Party

Northern Spark’s 7th year kicks off with the Launch Party from 7 – 9 pm on Saturday, June 10 at Thresher Square. Start your adventure with artful food created by 8 amazing local restaurants, beer from Fulton Brewing, the Northern Spark specialty cocktail “Spark 75” crafted by Crooked Water Spirits, and musical guests ZULUZULUU!
The historic Thresher Square building is just steps from The Commons, Northern Spark’s downtown Minneapolis neighborhood, so as the sun sets at 8:59 pm, you’ll already be in the prime spot for the festival’s opening celebrations.

Alma, Cafe Latté, Eastside, French Meadow Bakery & Cafe, Handsome Hog, Mercy, Red Stag Supperclub, and Silhouette Bakery & Bistro are preparing some incredible bites to start the night right. Mouth-watering, colorful, creative, and unusual: these bites will showcase the talent of the chefs and their teams. Come see what they have imagined especially for the Launch Party. A Sustain ticket is the only way you’ll get access to the food, so make sure you select this option if you wish to feast on these delightful bites! Drinks are included with the Sustain ticket as well.

An Adapt ticket provides you with just drinks for the duration of the party. You’ll have a great selection to choose from: brews from Fulton, ciders from Sociable Cider Werks, Sun Dog Gin from Crooked Water Spirits and Barefoot Bubbly sparkling wine in the “Spark 75” cocktail. And don’t forget to grab some caffeine from Peace Coffee! All available to have in hand while you dance to the beats of ZULUZULUU.

Join us! Find ticket options on Eventbrite.

Special thanks to Sherman Associates, Barbette, Bittercube, and RadissonRED for their support.


The Launch Party is presented by the Northern Spark Host Committee and is the annual fundraiser for Northern, the producers of the Northern Spark festival.
