Sifting through Central Minnesota to bring you the widest variety of events for the weekend! That’s what we do at “THE WEEKENDER”!
Live music? We’ve got 60’s and 70’s rock at the Paramount, 90’s rock at Pioneer Place, and probably a little grunge at Flannel Fest!
Plus, explore your senses Sunday at the Psychic Fair after learning Calf Roping Saturday. Yup – calf roping.
Let’s go! Here’s “The Weekender”!
Thursday, October 5th Through Saturday, October 7th at 7:30 p.m.
“What’s Going On: Songs From The Vietnam War Era” is a moving concert experience that incorporates live music, live narration, and video to provide the audience a multi-media deep dive into the ’60s and early ’70s and of course, the Vietnam War.
This concert examines the tumultuous time period through song and imagery but concludes on a note of hope and inspiration for a better tomorrow.
As one Vietnam Veteran narrates during the show, “When we think of our divisions today, they pale in comparison to how badly we were divided back then”.
A must-see Fabulous Armadillos production.

- 3Friday, October 5th at 7:30 p.m.Remembering the 90's show on MTV called "Unplugged" may be a bit difficult so that's why we relive it right here.Just like we remember when MTV played music and cut the cord. MTV Unplugged was a television series that showcased the biggest musical artists of the 90s. These musical performances were filmed and recorded in front of small audiences and as the title implies, the bands played acoustic instruments. The sparse stage set-ups, subdued lighting, and acoustic arrangements made for some of the most memorable live performances of the decade.A theater setting is ideal for this presentation. This show will showcase the best of those shows
