Twin Cities Jazz Festival

Branford Marsalis headlines the 16th annual Twin Cities Jazz Festival, which is already underway in downtown St. Paul. The festival is highlighted by free stages at Mears Park and Union Depot, but plenty more jazz can be found at bars, restaurants and Green Line light rail stops.

Minnesota Food Truck Fair

More than 35 local food trucks will pack Uptown, lining Hennepin Avenue and Holmes Avenue between Lake Street and W. 31st Street. The theme for this year’s fair is “$5 pair share” – each truck will have an item priced at $5 or less that’s designed for sharing. There will also be live music and craft beer available.
