Welcome to the East Harriet Neighborhood
East Harriet is bordered by 36th Street on the north and 46th Street to the south. Lyndale Avenue is the eastern boundary; Lake Harriet and Lakewood Cemetery largely make up the western border of the neighborhood. In addition to these Minneapolis landmarks, Lyndale Park Gardens and Rose Gardens, the Thomas Sadler Roberts Bird Sanctuary are located within East Harriet. Many houses in the neighborhood are two-story homes, set back from the streets.
1st Annual East Harriet PorchFest
First Annual East Harriet PorchFest!
What a fun night in the neighborhood! 13 East Harriet neighbors hosted over 26 amazing musicians providing some incredible entertainment to the neighborhood! The Warming House was the central hub of the evening while Twin Grill Food Truck served up delicious Mexican food all night.
Thanks to Brianna at The Warming House for coordinating the musicians, to the musicians for sharing their time and talent, and to the East Harriet hosts for opening up their porches and yards to neighbors and friends.

National Night Out August 1
National Night Out is an annual nationwide event that encourages residents to get out in the community, holding block parties and getting to know their neighbors as a way to encourage crime prevention. It's a great way to promote community-police partnerships and enjoy a Minnesota summer evening surrounded by friends and family.
