April 30 - Arbor Day Tree Planting Ceremony - Łomianki Park | 2 pm

Join the City of Columbia Heights and the Sister Cities as they celebrate 30 years as an organization in the community. The event will take place on Arbor Day (April 30) at 2 pm.

In 1991, Columbia Heights received an agreement from Lomianki, Poland (next to Warsaw) that they would be proud to be in a partnership with our City and we formalized this  “Sister Cities, International” friendship.  Our members are dedicated to this international friendship by promoting humanitarian, educational, cultural, civic, and social events.

May 15 - Anoka County Historical Society Zoom Presentation | 1 pm

The history of Columbia Heights is unique, transforming from rural to urban and blurring the lines between where Hennepin County ends and Anoka County starts. Sara Given, from the Anoka County Historical Society, shares the stories and history of Columbia Heights. She will focus on its beginnings, the ways in which it drew new residents, and why a quirk of timing meant there is an entire city in the middle of it. This event will take place via Zoom on Sat, May 15, at 1 pm. The presentation will also be broadcasted on Cable Channel 16. Registration is required. To register, click here.
