Minneapolis Events Calendar

Due to recent events regarding COVID-19, please be sure to check the official event website or with event organizers for up to date cancellations and postponements.

May Day parades. Colorful Pride celebrations. Hot Chocolate Winter Runs. Improv Festivals. Pond hockey tournaments. Seasonal Beer Celebrations. There is no shortage of events happening in Minneapolis all year long. We are an extremely active community of artists, creators, musicians, foodies, dancers, runners & bikers – a community of doers that can’t stand the thought of missing out.  With something always going on, we’re confident you’ll find something you won’t want to miss too.

To make the most out of your time in Minneapolis, don't worry about driving home. Make a weekend out of it! Book your stay at Hotel Ivy downtown and be right where all the action is. 

CONSTRUCTION ALERT: I-35W, a major interstate that passes through Minneapolis, is under construction for a 2.5 mile stretch – between 43rd and 15th Street. The project is ongoing through fall of 2021 and may affect transport in and out of the city. For more information, refer to the MN Department of Transportation’s detailed report.
