With Art-A-Whirl coming up this weekend, Northeast Minneapolis will once again take center stage. The annual festival celebrates an astonishingly wide variety of artistic mediums, while showcasing artists at pretty much every level of the industry. Indeed Brewing’s annual 3 day festival, “Whirlygig,” will once again be a favorite spot to grab a beer; it has arguably the best Art-A-Whirl location out of any brewery due to it’s close proximity to a plethora of art studios. Indeed, the beer will be flowing, but the weekend will also feature performances from Mark Mallman, Marijuana Deathsquads, Ayvah, Pert Near Sandstone, Lydia Liza, and Fury Things among others. This event is family friendly, but they’d prefer you leave your friends of the four legged variety at home, the black top can get quite hot and this event will be PACKED. 21+ to drink of course and wristbands that allow you to drink are only $1. Check out each days respective lineup above and make sure to bring CASH, this is a cash only event; click the link below for more information.
