Community Events

You’re Invited!

The City of Inver Grove Heights strives to provide a variety of fun and engaging special events to connect our community members to one another, keep our community active, provide a welcoming atmosphere for residents and visitors and share the many great amenities and features the City has to offer!

Weather Impacts to city-led programs and events

IGHs Weather Hot Line (651-450-2595) is the only place to check the status for city-led program and events due to inclement weather. We strive to update by 4:30 p.m. After hours, it is up to the coaches and instructors to make the final decision.

IGH Days

IGH Days will return for 2020 with programs offered which allow for necessary COVID-19 precautions to be maintained, including social distancing of six feet (unless from the same household or family). igh days logo
