Free summer, kid-friendly music opportunities in the Twin Cities

I had some extra time with the radio show being on hiatus, so I looked up music event where I could bring my kids. I thought I’d share. It’s not an inclusive list – but just to get you thinking about fun things on a rainy Memorial Day!

Ongoing Events

Como Spring Cafe – music every night at the Como Pavilion, usually at 7pm, except weekends when there are often two acts. The music ranges greatly but it’s a great place to bring kids. Or you can have a walk around the lake and hear music most of the way. There’s a bar and restaurant right there.

Lowertown Sounds – music on Thursday nights in Mears Park in St. Paul. Concerts begin at 6pm. There are food trucks, usually a beer tent and restaurants all around. If you want a seat, bring a chair or blanket.

Music and Movies in the Park (St Paul) – there’s a lot of crossover with the Como list, but there are other events listed as well.

Music and Movies in the Park (Minneapolis) – three isn’t one good list, but this website links to the various location calendars

Open Streets – street festivals held various Sundays all summer. Some locations are more music-focused than other.
