Community Programs

The Rumriver Art Center partners with many local community organizations to provide art education through classes and programs throughout the year. We have an ongoing partnership with the City of Ramsey for the “Art in the Park” series. The Rumriver Art Center has free art activity programs with the City of Anoka including Winterfest and Halloween events. We work with the Anoka-Hennepin Libraries to offer free classes at your local library. We are the resource for the north metro art community.

Ramsey Resident Day on the Farm

Come enjoy an afternoon of family friendly fall festivities! Celebrate with an afternoon of festivities at the Pearson Family Farm – a multigenerational, family owned farm right here in Ramsey. Bring your friends and family out for some pumpkin decorating with Rumriver Art Center, a jump in the popcorn pit, face painting, antique tractors display, corn maze, hay rides and maybe even get a little competitive with one of the many pumpkin games! Two food trucks will be available for those who work up an appetite. This will be a rain or shine event. See you out on the farm!
Registration is not required. Please come to the barn to get your wristbands and pumpkin coupons. Wristbands are $5 per person or $30 per household and are good for your whole day of family fun on the farm! Ramsey residents will get a coupon for one free painting pumpkin per child. Additional painting pumpkins can be purchased for $.50 each while supplies last.
