I could be up there either time! What do others think? Which is the better date?

I wonder if PP, the family, or others will schedule any events in the MPLS area around either of those dates? Maybe we will need to wait a bit and see before deciding which date would be better?

I am conflicted on both these dates for I feel they are both good times to go and there will probably be events held by the family and his associates around both these dates. Man - I want to do both dates but I live way to far to do that.

Um, I vote for April 21st and I can try to get out there on April 20th. When I go I plan to stay for some days to absorb the area and PP as much as I can.

Personally, I'd like to go when he was gifted to us, not when he was taken away. So June 7th would be perfect. I want to remember him when he lived not when he died. But I am sure there will be events and people going around both dates. IMO Peace, love and continued healing 2 u all. heart

I'm concerned that PP tour tickets around either of those dates will sell out pretty quickly. And the tickets will probably go on sale before the family, etc. announce any special events around those dates.

I'm intending to go in June. April, it's still too cold up there and I can't fathom trying to celebrate the day he died. I'm still holding back tears and we on month 7 almost....smh

I will check the dates when I return to work on Monday.

Definitely would like to meet up with others, since I would be traveling by myself, and this would be way more fun.

My only concern about April is the possibility of snow. I looked at some historical climate data and the April temps are not much below October. But I don't want to be doing any "winter driving." Been there, done that, that's why I moved to a warmer climate, lol. Other wise, I was leaning toward April...

Agreed! I think celebrating his life on the day of his birth, not on the terrible tragic day he was stolen from us is more fitting.

I am also trying to arrange a trip for next year. Always wanted to go to Minneapolis but never made it - sad to be going now Prince is gone - but we still want to go. I'm looking at flights in both April and June but trying to figure out what would be the better time to travel. I wonder will anything be on in the city, to mark either date - I would have loved to have been outside first Avenue with other fans on April 21st.. Also as someone else commented, would like to visit PP when we are over as this could be a one off trip!! It's just so difficult trying to plan a trip when you have no idea what will be going on!!! How many days would you recommend staying in MN??

Yeah, that's the big question: will there be any special events scheduled around either of those dates?

I have a feeling we won't have the answer to that question before PP tour tickets for 2017 go on sale. According to the PP website, that will happen in "mid-November." So those of us looking at April or June might have to decide without knowing what will be going on. And PP tour tickets around those dates might sell quickly.

And whow knows, they may schedule events again in October on the anniversary of all the events this year! Plus of course Oct. 28 will be the one-year anniversary of PP officially becoming a museum... nuts

I'm still leaning toward April. I'll probably be out there for 5-7 days but I have family in the area I will also want to visit.

When you go, are you planning to travel around the area and visit various Prince-related sites? Such as former homes, First Avenue, etc. ? You could easily spend two days doing that stuff alone.
