More and more of our favorite things in the Twin Cities and about the Twin Cities are coming back!

Basilica Block Party line up

So needless to say, if you love the music scene, this is the party to attend!

Per the website at

The Cities 97.1 Basilica Block Party will follow the current guidelines from state, county, and local health officials to provide a safe event for all attending. If guidelines are adjusted, we will reexamine the protocols. For the most up-to-date guidance from the State of Minnesota, click the link below.

Tickets are still available at but we at 365 Twin Cities recommend you plan ahead because the Basilica Block Party is one of the Things To Do in Minneapolis this September!

Fun Fact: The Cities 97.1 Basilica Block Party began in 1995 as a fundraiser to help pay for the structural restoration of The Basilica of Saint Mary. Today, proceeds from the event benefit the Basilica Landmark, which preserves, restores, and advances the historic Basilica of Saint Mary.
