Second Annual Kübb Kråwl – May 13th, 2017
Wondering what this Kubb Krawl is all about? Check out our video from the inaugural Kubb Krawl.
What is the Kubb Krawl?
The Kubb Krawl is a kubb party on wheels. Experience Minneapolis through kubb, trains, beer, bike, ballparks, bars & restaurants in a way only the Twin Cities could provide.
How does it work?
Teams are given MetroTransit day passes for the Green Line with stops along the way to play kubb! Each team will have a unique schedule with designated venues & times to play their matches. Results will be collected along the way with championship matches during a big ol’ kubb party at The Commons Park in the shadow of U.S. Bank Stadium. Check out the stops below!
If I don’t play in the Kubb Krawl, can I attend the party at The Commons?
Yes! The party is free and open to the public. Additional kubb pitches will be set up for non-Krawl participants. Several free kubb sets will be raffled off. Live music from Music in Mears, food trucks, and a variety of tasty beers as well. Yee-haw!
Target Field Plaza Station
All teams will begin at this beautiful urban green space to kickoff the event together.
Host site of the Minnesota Kubb Open, Marquette Plaza is one of the most unique and breathtaking venues for kubb anywhere in the world.

Although society has labeled Minneapolis & St. Paul twins, these two cities of our metro are far from identical. While we venture to paint a picture of accord, there’s a river of passive-aggressive tumult running between us. Us and them. Them and us. In order to help us unify once and for all here is what we need to do. A kubb tournament! Yep, kubb. As we ALL know kubb brings people together and creates peace on earth, so let’s bury the hatchets, let bygones be bygones, forgive and forget and just all kubb and make up.
St. Paul Kubb Society & Minnesota Kubb, along with Summit Brewing, CHS Field, The Saint Paul Saints and the Minnesota Twins are bringing the Twin Cities together with a day of kubb, beer, rails, bikes, hip bars and the most beautiful venues in each city. A true urban kubb experience. City to city, ballpark to ballpark. No other city (or cities) in the world can pull this off like Minneapolis and St. Paul, our Twin Cities.
