Thank you for visiting the Minnesota Community Planner.  Our goal is to help local residents find events and things to do in their city.  We hope to consolidate your search for events to one site, so you are able to find everything that is going on this week in one place.

Our goal is to help local residents find events and things to do in their city.

As we have filled the calendar with happenings, we have been amazed at the number of free events in the Twin Cites and have put a strong focus on finding these free events.  However, the site also includes paid events, especially if the proceeds go toward charities.

You can filter out paid and free events depending on what you are looking for using our search feature on the search page.

We hope to find things to do that will appeal to everyone, from low-key farmer’s markets, to parades geared toward children, to beer or wine tastings for the 21+ crowd.  To find the events that appeal to you, filter them out by keywords like Music Event, Family Event, Food Trucks, etc.

Since this site is built for the community, we hope to get a lot of input from the local communities and residents to add the hard to find city festivals and business sponsored events.

We are especially looking for events that don’t get a lot of publicity in other places, so if you know of a great event that isn’t on the website, please submit it here.

If it is last minute and you don’t think it will make it onto the site in time, you can also post it to the comments on our visitor submitted events page.  These events will post as soon as they are approved against spam, but they might not get onto the actual calendar so they won’t be filtered for keywords.
