The pavilion is located at the intersection of Cooper and Dan Patch Avenues.
Several unions will have kiosks with information and demonstrations about their work. The pavilion also features live music by members of the Twin Cities Musicians Union, giveaways and programs with organizations such as the St. Paul Fire Department and the University of Minnesota Raptor Center.
Everything is free and open to all.
