FRIDAY

51th Annual Twin Cities Pride

As weird as this may sound, the best part of Twin Cities Pride is actually the crowds. That’s because, even when the weather is hot as hell, the people who come to this fest are so damn friendly and nice. At the park, you’ll find all kinds of stuff to do, including sporting events, live music, a beer garden, and food truck eats. The fest this year is spilling over into the MInneapolis Sculpture Garden across the street, and that includes Friday night’s (not free) Beer Dabbler. There’s no headline concert this year at the official Pride event, but with Taylor Swift at U.S. Bank Stadium this weekend that’s probably a wise move. If you can only make it to one event though, Sunday’s parade is always a good time (though be prepared: it’s super long!). For a full schedule of happenings, visit tcpride.org. Free. 6 to 9 p.m. Friday (Sculpture Garden only); 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday; 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Loring Park, 1382 Willow St., Minneapolis. Through Sunday—Jessica Armbruster

Pride Block Party

It’s back! Enjoy tunes, beer, and more in the BLB side lot. Acts include DJ Michel BE, Venus De Mars and All the Pretty Horses, Foxy Tann, LaLa Luziuos, Desiree Bouvier, Bad Karma, Epitome-No Question. 6-10 p.m. Bryant-Lake Bowl & Theater, 810 W. Lake St., Minneapolis.

Northeast Dog Parade

Feel free to join in or just enjoy the view from a nearby bar or restaurant. Parade participants meet at the park across from Riverplace at 5:30 p.m. The parade starts around 6 p.m., proceeding up and down Hennepin Avenue from 6-7 p.m., ending in the park with doggie pools for pups that need to cool off. 

TC Jazz Fest

Twin Cities Jazz Fest

The Twin Cities Jazz Festival has been maintaining its annual St. Paul takeover since 1999. “It was meant to do something different,” says co-founder Steve Heckler, who’s retiring after this year. “I expected 300 people would show up to sell CDs and promote jazz, and thousands showed up—at least 3,000!” Nowadays, the fest draws upwards of 40,000 people over three days to its hub stages at Mears Park and satellite venues across the city, Heckler reports. Run as a nonprofit, the free Twin Cities Jazz Fest has lured talents like Curtis Fuller, McCoy Tyner, Chick Corea, and Grace Kelly over the years. (Heckler, a true jazz-head, becomes audibly overwhelmed when asked to choose favorites.) Artists are contractually obligated to participate in clinics with young musicians, adding to the community-first vibe that attracts hundreds of volunteers each year. For this year’s 25th anniversary installment, headliners include: Cuban saxophone great Paquito D'Rivera and the Dizzy Gillespie Afro-Latin Experience, NYC composer/multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Camille Thurman and the Darrell Green Quartet, eight-time Grammy winner Christian McBride, local powerhouses Davina & the Vagabonds, and adoptive local/Pitbull tourmate Lucia Sarmiento. Free. Friday and Saturday; find the full schedule here.—Jay Boller

Much Ado About Nothing

Classical Actor’s Ensemble is heading back to the parks this summer to bring free Shakespeare to the unwashed masses, as it was originally intended. This year’s production is Much Ado About Nothing, a 1600’s romcom that pulls out all the greatest hits: mistaken identities, unwanted flirtations, masquerade shenanigans, raging small town gossip, and, ultimately, love. Sorry to spoil it for you, but we all know these things usually end in marriage (if it’s a comedy) or mass death (if it’s a tragedy). The plot: A group of rowdy soldiers end up in a small Sicilian town. Will the evil Don John succeed at cockblocking? Find the list of dates and locations at classicalactorsensemble.org. All shows start at 7 p.m. This weekend’s locations: Harriet Island (110 Harriet Island Rd., St. Paul) on Friday; Lake of the Isles (2500 Lake of the Isles Pkwy. E., Minneapolis) on Saturday; and Cedar Lake East Beach (2000 S. Uptown Ave., Minneapolis) on Sunday.—Jessica Armbruster
