Celebrate the Cultural Districts Throughout the Year.
By Katie Hare
The Minneapolis Cultural Districts are home to some of the best food in the country, along with premier arts programming, museums, performance venues, independent businesses, glorious parks, and public art. Celebrate and savor these areas while supporting their residents and business owners by exploring cultural events throughout the year. From weekly farmers’ markets to annual festivals and community theater, these spaces and surrounding areas can provide the opportunity to learn, appreciate, provoke thought and discussion, and help sustain some of the most inspiring neighborhoods in the city.
In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theatre staff held the first MayDay Parade & Festival in spring of 1975 and it became a yearly event at/near Powderhorn Park. As of 2023, the MayDay Council is partnering with HOBT in designing a new approach to the planning and production of MayDay events based on principles of equity, justice, and collaboration.
