Your Weekend Guide for Things to do in Minneapolis: December 14-16

Brace Helgeson

Is there a more magical time to spend in beautiful Minneapolis than the month of December?  The snow is falling, the lights are glowing, and we can all settle in to have some hot chocolate and watch the Vikings.  But maybe you’re looking to get out this weekend and explore everything our region has to offer during the most wonderful time of the year?  Look no further!  Here are some seasonal activities happening in our area:

Friday, December 14
Arts of the Holidays Show and Sale at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts
Wayzata, MN

If you’re anything like me, the two weeks leading up to Christmas are spent in a frenzy of last-minute holiday shopping.  Every year, I always think I have more time than I do in reality! For your down-to-the-wire gift giving crisis, look no further than the Arts of the Holidays Show and Sale at the Minnetonka Center for the Arts!  Running until December 22, this annual crafts sale brings new artists together with returning favorites.  Over a hundred artists, all local, participate, and each item is selected for a unique blend of character and value.  Doors open at 10 am and close at 4, so come on out and find the perfect present for your loved ones!  For more information, including a slideshow of wares, visit the event’s website here.

Saturday, December 15
Tom’s Christmas Fish at the American Swedish Institute
Minneapolis, MN

One of the things we’re most known for here in the Twin Cities is our area’s Scandinavian heritage and culture.  At the Swedish Institute, this history is explored and brought to life.  This winter season, in an interactive exhibit open until January 13, the Institute is exploring a classic Swedish children’s book called Tom’s Christmas Fish.  Perfect for kids of all ages, from one to ninety-two, this exhibit is hands-on and invites patrons to fill different roles from the story from baker to fishmonger to artist.  Bring the family and come on by!  For more information, including other museum displays and pricing, visit the Institute’s website.

Minnesota Boychoir Annual Winter Concert at the Ted Mann Concert Hall
Minneapolis, MN

Founded in 1962, the Minnesota Boychoir has been an institution in the Twin Cities.  They seek to develop the musical ability of boys from diverse backgrounds and help them to become leaders of the next generation.  Most recently, they returned from performing in Barcelona, Spain in June 2017 to celebrate the choir’s 55thanniversary.  At their annual winter concert this year, the Boychoir will sing, among others, Allegro, Cantabile, Cantando, and Cantar.  Admission is free, but a freewill donation is encouraged to support the choir’s future endeavors.  Visit their website, www.boychoir.org, for more information about this concert and the organization as a whole.
