June 3, 2011

Wondering what to do this month? As we’ve done before, here are some hauthaus approved June activites:

June 3-5 – Edina Art Fair. Free. Get out and enjoy one of the first art fairs of the summer. More that 300+ artists will be showing and selling their creations, along with face painters and food vendors. It’s fun for the whole family. Fri 10-7pm / Sat 10-7pm / Sun 10-5pm. More info: http://www.edinaartfair.com/

June 5th – Grand Old Day. Free. The yearly festival is happening this weekend, Sunday 8-5pm. Bring the whole family or a group of friends out to enjoy the festivities, music, parade, food and drinks! More info: http://grandave.com/grandoldday/index.php

June 18th – Rock the Garden. Sold Out.  The biggest summer concert, put on by 89.3 The Current, is sold out, it’s true. But you can still catch an ear full of great music by Neko Case, My Morning  Jacket, Tapes N’ Tapes and Booket T Jones if you head out the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden that day. Great idea: bring a cooler and make a picnic out of it! More info: click here.

All of June – Farmer’s Markets. Free. What is summer without famer’s markets? Heading to the market is a great Friday afternoon or Saturday morning activity… what a great way to spend a couple hours! For a farmer’s market near you, click here to see the markets in Minnesota.

Weekends in June – Canterbury Races. $5. Switch it up and head out to the race track! Races take place Fri-Sun all of June and Thurs – Sun starting June 16th. Sunday they have pony rides, a petting zoo and face painting for the kids. June 24th is Craft Beer Day. If you’re looking for something different to do, this might be it!
