Music & Entertainment

Winter is the perfect time to catch a show in Minneapolis Northwest. Our area has a fantastic theatre scene, and you don’t even have to go downtown to see some of the best acts in the city. Meanwhile, free outdoor music, movies, and entertainment are on tap all summer long!

Just minutes away is downtown Minneapolis and St. Paul, where you’ll find amazing music venues, world-renowned theatres, hilarious comedy clubs, casinos, and speedy race horses.
