About Harriet Island Park
The award-winning Harriet Island Regional Park is one of Saint Paul’s—and one of the Twin Cities’—most popular parks. Located alongside the Mississippi River near downtown Saint Paul, the ‘island’ boasts many amenities, including the Clarence W. Wigington Pavilion, a 5,000 square foot facility that hosts receptions, parties, weddings, and more throughout the year.
Michelle Tverberg, TCWEP Co-Founder said “We are listening. Our attendees and members have been monitoring and studying the COVID guidelines for months, and it’s their feedback that is driving us to reopen events in person.”
Since 2009 TCWEP has been meeting once-a-month; even during the COVID19 lock downs earlier in 2020, they did online events. TCWEP began in 2009, following the recession, 2 small business owners (Michelle Tverberg of Delight Photography and Matthew Sherry CEO of Complete Wedding & Events) decided to start networking together as a way to share business between their customers, knowing the impact of word of mouth referrals. It’s humble beginnings included folding-chairs, lemonade, and participants bringing in mid western hospitality style crock pots from home to share at their meetings of a dozen entrepreneurs. That number began to grow and within a couple years the number reached about 150. Over the past ten years the group consistently has a monthly attendance of 80-175 guests.
