Festival Twin Cities Pride Festival

This event is featured in The Current Summer Guide, highlighting both musical and non-musical things to do this summer in the Twin Cities and beyond.

This year's Pride celebration in Minneapolis is, like many other big summer events, treading a middle path: not fully back to pre-pandemic normal, but not cancelled or moved online either. While there won't be a parade this year, given the extensive planning required (not to mention the joyfully crowded conditions), a Twin Cities Pride Festival will fill Loring Park with "BIPOC and LGBTQ+ vendors, food courts, a beer garden, and music stages." Admission will be free. If you're vaxxed up and ready to get sweaty, First Avenue is hosting dance parties on both Friday and Saturday nights of this postponed Pride weekend. (Jay Gabler)
