6th Annual Wedge LIVE Cat Tour*
NOW AT RISK DUE TO MAYORAL VETO
June 29, 2022 – 6 p.m. Mueller Park, Minneapolis
(25th & Bryant Ave S)
*Pending the approval of street improvements by the Minneapolis City Council.
Update 6/21/2022: This event is at risk of being cancelled or moved out of Minneapolis due to Mayor Frey’s veto of full-time bus lines on Hennepin Ave. His decision disregards last Thursday’s vote of the City Council, the recommendation of his own Public Works staff, a letter from Minneapolis’ entire 15 member state legislative delegation, the preference of Metro Transit to ensure the success of a $60 million transit upgrade (E Line bus rapid transit), and most importantly the needs of my tourgoers. The City Council’s first chance to override Frey’s veto is June 30, so we are postponing this event indefinitely as we work out a contingency plan and discuss the potential need for relocation of the tour to another city.
