Shriners International is a fraternity based on fun, fellowship and the Masonic principles of brotherly love, truth and relief.

Rent Our Facility

El Riad Shrine has first class facilities available to rent for both our shriners (at a reduced rate) and also for general public.

Shrine Events

Our units and clubs host many events that are open to the public while also organizing fundraisers for ways to earn money for our shrine and philanthropy.

View the virtual dedication and ribbon cutting of the new Shriners Children’s Twin Cities clinic in Woodbury, Minnesota. This beautiful new clinic continues to allow our multidisciplinary team approach to thrive. Our patients have access to their medical staff, radiology team, occupational and physical therapists, orthotists and prosthetists, child life, care management and so much more all under one room and within one visit. To schedule an appointment, call 612-596-6105.
 
 
Take a virtual tour of our brand new clinic in Woodbury, Minnesota! We are excited to share our brand new, state-of-the-art facility that our patients and providers deserve. Our theme from the beginning was to create a facility that is “High-Tech” and “High-Touch” – the latest in technology to benefit our patients, but with a friendly and accessible atmosphere that matches our culture of putting children at center of everything we do.

2020–2021 National Patient Ambassadors

Every year, Shriners Hospitals for Children selects two National Patient Ambassadors to represent the health care system’s patients. We are proud to introduce our 2020-2021 National Patient Ambassadors Connor and Mia, and share their incredible stories.

Mia, 16, was born with a severe case of infantile idiopathic scoliosis. Her journey with Shriners Hospitals for Children began when she was 2. Mia’s treatments have included halo traction to gradually straighten and stretch her spine, as well as nearly 20 surgeries.
 
 
Connor, 14, was born with a bilateral incomplete cleft lip and complete cleft palate involving the hard and soft palate. Connor’s condition affects not only his teeth and his ability to eat, but also his speech, hearing, and social and emotional well-being.
