Memorial Day is almost here, and if you’re planning on making the most of the long weekend, the city of Minneapolis is here to help! Our Twin City is home to a variety of sights, sounds, and flavors, all of which are available to help you and your loved ones celebrate this holiday the right way.

If you’re looking for a local sports bar and grill to satiate your thirst and alleviate your hunger, The Herkimer brewpub in Minneapolis is here to serve! Our craft brewery only crafts small-batch beers that are delicious, refreshing, and unique.

Before you hit the road this Memorial Day weekend, be sure to catch up on our top things to do in 2019 across the city. We look forward to having a cold one with you!

Honor Those Who Sacrificed

One of the best ways to ensure you have a good Memorial Day weekend is to take the time to honor and respect those brave souls that risked it all for us to live freely in this country. You can plan to watch the parade this weekend, or make a trip to the Minnesota Air National Guard Museum to learn more.

Rent a Ride and Explore the Town

A couple of companies have made it possible for locals to rent a bicycle and explore all that the city has to offer. Springtime is the perfect opportunity to get out and soak up the sunshine, as our temperatures will reach into the 60s and 70s. There is a lot to see and do, providing ample opportunities for long-time residents to discover something new.

Visit Local Farmers’ Markets

Who doesn’t love fresh food? Minneapolis is home to more than 25 different farmers’ markets, making it easy for locals and tourists to plan a route that maximizes the flavor and fun. Browse online to see how many activities you can find at one of these events, and be sure to plan ahead to find the perfect flavors for your family. Still have that bike? Ride it through Minneapolis to find healthy food sources!

Attend a Music Festival

Those looking to make the most of their weekend can attend a show or musical event to make the most of the warm weather and time off. Minneapolis hosts the Soundset Musical Festival annually, with attendance swelling from 12,000 fans to over 30,000 people in less than a decade.

This year, you can enjoy music from artists including Lil Wayne, G-Eazy, DMX, Prof, Run The Jewels, SZA, Atmosphere, Tech N9ne, DJ Spinderella, and more. Soundset is here to put on one memorable show, so be sure to book your tickets while they are still available!

Try the Local Brewpubs

While known for its many sites and attractions, Minneapolis’ real beauty is in the beer. You can find breweries nearly anywhere you go across the city, tasting a range of hard ciders, gin and tonics, ales, and more.

The Herkimer is here to serve as your premier brewpub across Minneapolis, providing the most delicious brews to match our delectable menu. After more than 18 years, our local pub is proud to provide an award-winning experience for you over the long weekend. Contact us online with any questions you may have, and be sure to visit our brewpub on Lyndale Avenue South to taste the difference for yourself!
