Two Must-Attend September Events


September: an interesting month. School’s back in full swing. Football’s just starting up. Summer is mostly over, and fall is just starting. You haven’t quite retired your summer sneaker rotation, but you haven’t quite broken out the fall rotation yet. It’s a month of transition.

And this year, with that transition comes two great events for sneakerheads, fashionistas,┬ámusicians, artists, and anyone else who’s looking to link with like-minded individuals, make connections, and have a great time: Piff’s Fall Festival block party, and Studiiyo23’s TSCAX8.

Piff’s block party will take place on the 17th (that’s next Saturday, a week from tomorrow) from 3-7 PM, and will feature food from great local spots like Blue Door Pub and Black Coffee, live music from the Red Bull Sounds truck, and a charitable drive to raise money for the Minneapolis Boys and Girls Club. It’s taking place at 1600 Como Avenue, right by the “I’m Feeling Good” mural. The street will be shut down, and it’s a can’t-miss event.

Studiiyo23 will be hosting the 8th edition of their popular Twin City Sneaker Art Xchange on the 25th (the last Sunday of the month) from 12-6 PM at the Cabooze’s outdoor area. The long-running sneaker event always provides an enjoyable experience, and will offer a variety of activities to keep you entertained.

So be sure to stop by both of these great local events, and support our Minneapolis businesses. We’ve got a fantastic community here, and you don’t want to miss a chance to link with your peers. Need more info on either event? Check out their event pages here and here.
