District 10 Como Community Council

D10 Como Park Annual Ice Cream Social 2023 - Friday, July 14, 5:30-8pm

 Every year, the D10 Neighborhood Relations Committee plans our Ice Cream Social, featuring free ice cream,(this year from local shop Dars Double Scoop), live music, donation drive, meet-and-greets with neighborhood organizations, and activities for children.

The event is at the Historic Streetcar Station in Como Park, 1224 Lexington Pkwy N. Because parking is limited, we encourage community members to walk, bike, roll, carpool, or take public transportation. Bring your neighbors!

New this year – the Como Community Council will be collecting donations for the Booth Brown House Youth Shelter.  The items below will be collected at the Booth Brown House table at the event, or can be dropped off at the shelter (1471 Como Ave) before or after the event.  If you’d like to make a financial donation, you can do so HERE (when you enter a Como address, your donation will automatically be routed to the Booth Brown House location – otherwise note that it’s for the Booth Brown House).

We will be collecting the following NEW items:

  • Chapstick
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug Spray
  • Deodorant
  • Reusable Water Bottles
  • Travel Size Lotions
  • Shorts
  • T-shirts
  • Bath Towels

The Argyle Street Trio is a dynamic vocal-centric ensemble comprising three versatile Twin Cities singers: Rhiannon Fiskradatz, Kristen Olsen Rodriguez and veteran guitarist Dale Dahlquist. Their diverse repertoire includes Western swing, Chicago blues, Big Band & Hot Club jazz, bluegrass, and a treasury of your favorite vintage rock and folk tunes. Featured artists include the Beatles, Mills Brothers, Bonnie Raitt, Paul Simon, Linda Ronstadt, CSNY, Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys.

Their snappy arrangements and rich 3-part harmony will have you tapping your toes and singing along – seated, standing or dancing. Their shows appeal to all ages.

One-Rob Band rose out of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 as a way to continue playing in a group during times of isolation in individual sessions dubbed ‘Rob’s Not Dead.’ After lockdowns ceased, Rob Stokes legitimized this group as a bonafide solo project, drawing on one-man band efforts like the self-titled albums McCartney, Prince, and Garcia. In 2021 Fly Free was released as a compilation of their 2020 recordings and by 2022 had been featured on the Grateful Dead’s social media. Rob can be found outside of One-Rob Band playing locally in the Twin Cities with his group All Good Company,  Jim Hinkley’s Forever Young, and other various acts.

This event is still being planned. If you’re interested in helping plan or volunteering at this event you can fill out our volunteer interest form, come to our Neighborhood Relations Committee meetings (1st Tuesdays), or reach out to organizer@district10comopark.org.
