MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – It’s almost the weekend, so let’s get planning. This weekend you can go on the hunt for a one-of-a-kind antique find, take in a St. Paul concert or watch pastry chefs do battle with honey.

Junk Bonanza
Attention savvy shoppers! If you’re the type who can spot a diamond in the rough, you’ll want to check out the Junk Bonanza this weekend. Thousands are expected at Canterbury Park on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday for the event. The Junk Bonanza brings together more than 160 juried purveyors of vintage, antiques, architectural salvage, repurposed and up-cycled goods. Everything is 40 years or older, or built from components of that vintage.

Minnesota Music Summit
This weekend is also the Minnesota Music Coalition’s Minnesota Music Summit. It’s a three-day free festival for artists, fans and industry geeks. Think of it as our version of South by Southwest. Events like concerts, workshops and mentoring sessions will be sprinkled through St. Paul at places like Amsterdam Bar and McNally Smith College of Music.

First Annual Dandelion Honey Pastry Chef Challenge
Finally, foodies will want to check out the Dandelion Honey Pastry Chef Challenge Thursday night at the Nicollet Island Pavilion. Yes, dandelion honey. Local pastry chefs will be using nature’s sweetener to make delicious treats that will be judged by local celebs. Guests will also enjoy snacks, a cash bar, and live music.
