Uptown Art Fair

The Uptown Art Fair in Minneapolis is the winner of more than 115 International Festivals and Events Association Awards, and it isn’t hard to see why. The Art Fair is three days of creative fun, from art activities to wine tasting to a Culinary Arts competition. There is non-stop entertainment ranging from reggae to magic on the performance stage, and festival food galore. The main star of the show, however, is the art: ranging from limited editions to one-of-a-kind treasures from more than 350 talented artists from around the world. Free. Times vary; check website for details.

Gary Louris Live at the Hilde

We’ve all had those moments during the long frigid winter where we closed our eyes and pictured a balmy evening spent listening to strands of live music melt into the warm summer breeze.  It helped us survive the cold (and yes, despite our moments of doubt, we did), and now the fun is finally beginning.

"The Red Velvet Cake War" at Lyric Arts

this riotously funny Southern-fried comedy, the three Verdeen cousins,
Gaynelle, Peaches, and Jimmie Wyvette could not have picked a worse time take

uphill battle as a parade of wildly eccentric Verdeens gathers on the hottest
day of July, smack-dab in the middle of Texas tornado season.
