Arbor Annie's Weekend Highlights - May 20-22

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Highlights May 20-22

Spread the love

This weekend is the last weekend before summer officially kicks off on Memorial Day weekend next week. Be mindful of the weather especially on Saturday. As I double-checked the forecast there is the potential for severe weather on Saturday, – thunderstorms, gusty winds, and possibly hail. Plan your day with care and verify any events are still happening. We include links to the event host in almost all of our event listings.

Arbor Annie’s Weekend Event Highlights

This weekend is the kickoff of the Ann Arbor Summer Festival with their Live Here Now Concerts on both Friday and Saturday. Make sure to check the A2SF website and social media for any weather updates for the Saturday concert. Then Picnic Pops returns on Sunday at Pioneer with the AAPS middle and high school bands (note the event will be canceled in case of thunderstorms). If you’re looking for an indoor concert, check out Superheroes concert by Out Loud Chorus also on both Friday and Saturday.
