Minneapolis Events Calendar

If there is one thing this city knows, it’s how to keep the calendar full all year long.

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 experience, don't worry about driving home. Make a weekend out of it! It's more fun when you sleep over (we promise). Be sure to check out the best hotel deals to make the most of your weekend getaway.

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.
