Spring 2024 Tour Dates: 4/6 and 4/13


Moving Pillsbury Forward will host Spring tours on Saturday April 6th at noon and 2pm and again on Saturday April 13th at noon and 2pm.

These are anticipated to be the last two days of guided historic tours on site. As in the past, the tours are FREE and Open to the Public. Tours begin in our south dock entrance (at the corner of 16th St. & Phillips Ave.) Tours last about one hour with several stops and photo opportunities within and around several buildings. The tours are on a generally level concrete surface but sturdy shoes or boots are still recommended.  Last Fall our tour guests ranged in age from 2 to 90 years old…everyone is welcome to attend! No reservations are necessary.  There is ample parking in our south lot and along 15th St.

The guided tours have a focus on the historic Pillsbury Era at the site. Many former Pillsbury employees have been interviewed this past year. They have generously shared their knowledge of the site so that it could be shared with tour guests during the tours.  Yes…tour guests will also see a good bit of quality street art/graffiti. Our resident artists have been busy!

Engraved “Pillsbury” bricks will be available ($20).  Cash donations for tours are encouraged but not required.  And, micro-pantry food donations will be accepted both tour days. Our Pillsbury Neighborhood micro-pantry has been a great success. 

Thanks for being a part of this important community project.
