Weekend Entertainment and Events

Click to view PDFWhew!  The concessionaires are gone, the streets are open and we are free to move around town again.

Not that we didn't have fun at DJJD, but . . .

Lots to do on this fall weekend. Friday night the new exhibit at the Northfield Arts Guild opens.  "Melange" features the work of Rhonda Banks, Toni Easterson, Sharol Nau and Riki Kolbl Nelson.  The opening reception is Friday night, from 7-9 p.m.  NAG is also hosting 'Coffeehouse Writer's Night' on Friday at the Center for the Arts on Division Street.  Local writers are invited to read their works in an open mike setting starting at 7:30 p.m.

Friday's music includes Just Us at the Tavern, Clearblue at Dawn's Corner Bar in Dundas, and The Kenster at the Cow.

Saturday you might want to head over to Alexander Park in Faribault for the Cannon River Splash, a paddle and raffle event for Cannon River Watershed Partnership.  Festivities start at 9:30 a.m.

Both St. Olaf and Carleton have home football and soccer games on Saturday afternoon. Enjoy being outside and cheer them on!

Saturday night John Manners plays the Tavern and Clearblue is back at Dawn's.

Sunday, bring your dog to Riverside Park for Bark in the Park. Canines at Play is hosting this fundraiser to help raise $10,000 to build a dog park in Northfield.  Demonstrations include herding, agility and carting.  Many other special activities are planned for people and their pets.
