Festival of Dionysus Linnaeus Arboretum (Rain venue: Dive)

Join us on Saturday, May 5th, Honors Day, at 2PM for the sixth biennial Festival of Dionysus, performed in the idyllic setting of the Linnaeus Arboretum. This theatrical festival showcases the creativity of Gustavus students, who direct, choreograph, and perform in their own interpretations of ancient drama. Original musical compositions, performances in masks, and choral dances in Greek have all been part of this extravaganza in the past. Family, friends, and the general public are welcome to join the festivities which, like the ancient festival at Athens, are enjoyed al fresco, weather permitting (rain venue: The Dive), and celebrate the advent of spring.
