Celebrate the luck of the Irish one day early with a full afternoon of traditions. The day of dance features more than 10 local dance schools, music and food.

1964: The Tribute

1964: The Tribute has been impressing audiences as a Beatles cover band for years. Hailed by Rolling Stone as “the best Beatles tribute band,” the group plays a wide variety of Beatles favorites while dressed in ’60s-inspired garb to really take the audience back in time

Minnesota Sinfonia presents Clair de Lune

As part of the ongoing free winter concert series, the Minnesota Sinfonia is coming to the Basilica of St. Mary. Accomplished pianist Loren Fishman will perform Claude Debussy’s famous “Clair de Lune,” Robert Schumann’s “Piano Concerto in A minor,” “Opus 54,” “Legends 1 and 4,” and Antonin Dvorak’s “Legends 1 and 4,” and “Opus 59,” among others.  

Sing-along Sound of Music

The hills are alive at this fun event, where audience members are invited to sing along with the familiar tunes of Sound of Music. The classic film will be projected on a giant screen, with subtitles for the audience to interact and jump into the action. Costumes are encouraged; prizes will be given for the best costumes in a contest occurring a half hour prior to each show. 

Trisha Brown Dance Co.

Known for her post-modern dance performances, Trisha Brown’s choreography, costuming and set design is something to behold. There will be pieces never before seen in Minneapolis, as well as older favorites

Imagine Dragons

Join platinum-selling rock band Imagine Dragons as it brings the “Into the Night” tour to the Xcel Energy Center. The band will play radio hits such as “Radioactive” and “Demons,” as well as other selections from the hit album; the group is making its second stop in the Twin Cities after a sold-out show in September

The Scarecrow and his Servant

The Children’s Theatre brings the characters and plot of Philip Pullman’s children’s book to life. Scarecrow’s world drastically changes one afternoon when he is struck by a lightning bolt and brought to life. He sets out on a quest for fame and forms a friendship with a witty peasant boy. Although stubborn, the scarecrow finds a best friend for whom he would do anything. Intended for children in grades three and older.


Shakespeare never goes out of style, as shown in this timeless production of Othello at the Guthrie Theatre. Filled with jealousy, manipulation and love, Othello reveals how destructive doubt and suspicion can be. Though the story is a classic, it’s as relevant today as ever. 

The Music of Downton Abbey

The musical score is as much a part of the PBS drama as the story for the true Downton Abbey aficionado, and this concert allows for the opportunity to hear it live. Emmy Award-winning composer John Lunn’s tunes will be sung by the Oratorio Society Chorus, along with original British choral arrangements from the early 20th century. Two scenes from the show will be re-enacted, and there will even be sing-a-long opportunities for the audience.

Twin Cities Auto Show

This year marks the Auto Show’s 41st celebration of the automobile industry. Featuring hundreds of domestic and imported cars, trucks and SUVs, the Twin Cities’ show is the seventh largest nationwide.
