Twin Cities events: Art-A-Whirl, rooftop mini-golf and more
More than 1,000 artists will take over 70 Northeast Minneapolis galleries, businesses and breweries Friday-Sunday for Art-A-Whirl, the self-proclaimed largest open studio tour in the country.
- The annual celebration of local art is free and open to the public. Visitors can explore studios, shop and meet artists, listen to live music and check out local restaurants.
- Indeed Brewing's music festival Whirlygig also runs all weekend, or you can watch live car crushing at 4pm Saturday at auto repair shop Turbo Tim's.
