The Caravan du Nord tour will hit the Paramount Stage on Oct. 26, with Twin Cities-based bands 4onthefloor and Me and My Arrow.

This special event is organized by the Minnesota Music Coalition and is supported through Clean Water & Legacy Amendment funding and 89.3 The Current.

October events will end on Oct. 27 with a disco dance on the stage of the Paramount.

People are invited to come dance to all their ’70s favorites as the DC Drifters rock the stage.

These are just the beginning of this fantastic season.

There will be more events throughout November and December.

We are also working on bringing back movies to the Paramount.
