The Historic Lakewood Memorial Chapel
This event will take place in the beautiful and historic Lakewood Memorial Chapel. This stunning building was built in 1910 by architect Harry Wild Jones, and is modeled after the Hagia Sofia in Istanbul. It is one of the only examples of Byzantine style chapels in the US, and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Click here for more information on the Lakewood Memorial Chapel.

Bike parking is also available at a bike rack near the front gate.
Parking is available on any of the roads inside Lakewood’s gates unless otherwise noted with a no parking sign. Handicap parking will be available near the chapel entrance. Lakewood does not have an onsite parking lot – it is street parking only. This means you may have to park a short distance and walk. We strongly encourage carpooling and taking public transportation.
There is a bus that stops right outside of Lakewood’s gates, which is a short walk to the chapel.
Please park any bikes at the bike rack to the west of the main entrance. There is a nice ride station available on 34th/Hennepin, and 36th/Bryant. Do not lock bikes to trees or signs, or leave unlocked bikes on the grounds.
