Unfortunately, Mankato does not allow pets in any Mankato Parks.  SCMN Pride regrets that you’ll have to leave your four legged friends at home.

Please check out Riverfront Park’s website in advance for specific information related to the venue.  Parking in the park itself will be limited to food vendors, performers, and our friends with disabilities.  Vendors will have access to load and unload.  Parking maps can be found here for your convenience.

*Accessibility- The park is partially accessible. There is disabled parking in the lot closest to the park and limited spots in the loop by the park. There is one paved path that goes through the park and a couple of points to go down a little closer to the stage but there is not access to the lower half of seating for the stage. The vendors are located in the grass where there is not a path. There will be accessible bathrooms available.

*Hearing Impairment- Interpreter provided upon request. If you are in need of an interpreter please contact us as soon as possible prior to the event so that we can arrange accommodations.

For any further questions please contact us at 507 317 0993 or
