This week: blues, farm fresh food and kids making art


Here’s a sampling of what you have to look forward to this week on the PDD Calendar.

The Duluth Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting a DFL Congressional Candidate Forum on Tuesday morning at the Play Ground with all three candidates – Jeff Anderson, Tarryl Clark and Rick Nolan — in attendance.

The Duluth Playhouse Youth Repertory Theatre has not one, not two, but three shows in production starting this week! They will be performing William Shakespeare’s As You Like It starting Wednesday, Little Women: The Musical starting Thursday, and Rent: School Edition starting Friday.

Chaperone Records, Duluth’s newest record label, has its launch party in the Zeitgeist Arts Building on Friday.

The Bayfront Blues Festival runs Friday through Sunday, with a special tribute on Saturday to the recently departed Big Walter Smith, featuring Jimi “Prime Time” Smith & the Groove Merchants.

The first of two Table to Farm events sponsored by Chester Creek Cafe is being held this Saturday at Birch Point Gardens in Saginaw. It’s a prix fixe meal with food from the farm to your plate served al fresco.

The Art in Me arts festival in Lester Park is Sunday with a variety of art projects available for your budding artists.

So what are you doing this week? Can we tag along? Any upcoming events that you want to promote? Let us know!`
