Arts Orbit Radar Weekend | July 25-26


Saturday, July 25

On the radar: What a day! The annual FLOW art crawl wends its way through North Minneapolis, the MCBA awards the first-ever international book art prize, the ArtCar Parade cruises around Lake Harriet (with art boats and art bikes as well!), and Brother Ali headlines the One Day in July festival honoring the 75th anniversary of the 1934 Minneapolis Truckers’ Strike.

Under the radar: Two festivals—African Global Roots and Carifest—celebrate Black culture. A very different, but no less jubilant, cultural celebration is taking place in Shakopee, as PrideAlive hosts GayDay at Valleyfair.

Sunday, July 26

On the radar: The crafty Aby Wolf heads a solid lineup at the second annual Caffetto Arts & Crafts Fair.

Under the radar: Watch the final leg of the Tour de France live on the big screen at the Riverview, with a continental breakfast served alongside the popcorn and Milk Duds.
