Minerva - The Whimsy Caravan - is a custom built gypsy wagon named after the goddess Minerva - Goddess of poetry, music, handicrafts, art and commerce. Our Minerva is a Mobile Event business based out of Catonsville, Maryland. She was completed and ready to roll in 2020 just as the pandemic hit full force. We built her with the goal of turning her into a vendor caravan peddling our wares from town to town, hitting our favorite festivals along the way. With our, unforeseen, downtime and inability to get her out to the public, we were really able to sit back and dream up her endless possibilities. We loved seeing our neighbors and friends go inside and start spit firing ideas of all the things they imagined Minerva could be. "An ice cream truck, a face paint booth, a champagne bar..." That's when it hit us - why not do it all and give the people what they want? In true Gypsy fashion Minerva could be ever changing. That is how our party rentals were born - and just in time for small birthdays and intimate gatherings. We are still staying true to our initial vision and popping up locally with seasonal wares and art workshops for all ages. We love that you're here tuning into our adventure.
